The operators of a West Park meat market and Miramar packaging and shipping store were arrested yesterday on charges that they ran backroom gambling operations that could take in more than $25,000 in a single day.
Arrest documents weren't available late Monday, but BSO spokeswoman Dani Moschella said the business of the bookie operations was mostly oriented with basketball and football. We're working on getting the paperwork; stay tuned. In the meantime, here are photos of the two suspects being arrested by extraordinarily intimidating folks with masks.
Rodriguez was arrested at Santiago's Meat Market.
Pena was arrested at his Miramar home on the 6100 block of SW 20th Court.
