WITH THE LATEST DEVELOPMENTS (SN) THIS ISN’T JUST A SMALL LOCAL OPERATION ACCORDING TO PROVIDENCE POLICE… THIS MAY BE CONNECTED TO A MUCH LARGER BETTING OPERATION IN NEW YORK. THE AFTERNOON RAID STARTED HERE…. MUSIC MANIA ON BROAD STREET… THE BUSINESS…. WAS HOME TO AN ILLEGAL SPORTS BETTING OPERATION ACCORDING TO PROVIDENCE POLICE. we’ve been watching him for some time. EULALIO EGUREN WAS ARRESTED IN FRONT OF THE STORE MONDAY AS OFFICERS ENTERED. INSIDE… POLICE SAY THEY FOUND THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS IN DIFFERENT DRAWERDS AND ENVELOPES — SOME NEXT TO BASEBALL AND FOOTBALL BETTING SLIPS. PROVIDENCE POLICE MAJOR DAVID LAPATIN SAID THE OFFICERS HAVE BEEN WORKING THIS FOR THREE MONTHS. its been going on for a long time and we finally caught up with it. LATER… POLICE SEARCHED EGUREN’S PROVIDENCE HOME ON STANDISH AVENUE…. THE REPORT SAYS THEY SEIZED A COMPUTER AND SOME DOCUMENTS. THE TIMING OF THE BUST COMES JUST AFTER TWIN RIVER ANNOUNCED LEGAL MOBILE SPORTS BETTING…. RHODE ISLAND LEGALIZED IT IN THE LAST LEGISLATIVE SESSION. LAPATIN SAID BECASUE OF THAT – THERE’S NO REASON TO BE BREAKING THE LAW. its as simple as this… its illegal. and if you go down the street a couple miles its legal so do the right hting and theres no problem. LAPATIN ADDED THIS BUST… MAY HAVE A LARGER NETWORK. a connection with new york city as the suspect made many trips back and forth. this could be part of a larger ring? correct. (SN) HE SAID HE EXPECTS THERE TO BE MORE ARRESTS EVENTUALLY AFTER LAST NIGHT’S RAID. EGUREN WAS ARRAIGNED THIS MORNING ON THE FELONY CHARGES BUT DIDN’T ENTER A PLEA. HIS BAIL WAS SET AT 5 THOUSAND DOLLARS PERSONAL RECOGNIZANCE.
