DULUTH, Ga. —
Channel 2 Action News has learned Gwinnett County Police have broken up an all-woman gambling operation based out of at least two residences in a quiet Duluth neighborhood. Channel 2's Kerry Kavanaugh first reported there was one arrest in the case, but has since learned the operation was much bigger than thought. Police said they received an anonymous tip from a person saying they were upset their spouse was gambling too much at the home. When police arrived at the home, they said they discovered it was operating like a social club for women. Police said they found gambling machines, cash and took away carloads of women. "I think I'll be looking closer next time," neighbor Sheila David said. David said she had no idea what was going on inside her next-door neighbor's home on Michaels Circle, but she said there was always a crowd. "Sometimes as many as 10 cars," David said. She said the cars would come and go day and night, including limos, and neighbors said the customers were all large groups of women. "All day it was just older ladies all day long," neighbor Cindy Murray said. "It seemed this was a woman's only organization. Men would come, but they were not permitted to gamble," Cpl. Jake Smith with the Gwinnett County Police Department said. As Kavanaugh first reported on Wednesday, when police raided the home they said they seized four gambling machines and cash in excess of $15,000. Police arrested the woman they say ran the operation, Mi Hui Yi, and gathered information that led them to a second home around the corner on Old Norcross Road. "When they went to that location there was actually gambling going on inside. Several people fled out of the back of the residence," Smith said. Police said inside the second home they found another six machines and made five more arrests. A total of six women were booked into the Gwinnett County Jail on numerous gambling-related charges. "That just goes to show you, you don't know what's going on right next door," Smith said. Police said they don't know if the alleged operations spread beyond the two homes and that their investigation continues.
