Machines seized in Commission raid

14/03/2012

Gambling Commission officers provided support and expertise to the Metropolitan Police in one of their largest policing operations this year - Operation Condor. The operation is designed to combat those who flout licensing rules including shops, pubs and clubs across London and, as a result eighteen gaming machines were seized.

The gaming machines were removed from seven alcohol licensed premises in North London and enquiries are continuing. The Commission’s enquiries focus on the source of supply for the allegedly illegally-sited machines, while any additional action with regard to the premises will be undertaken by local authorities and the police with our further assistance and advice if required.

Regional Compliance Manager for the South-East, Clive Noblett said: “The Gambling Commission was pleased to lend support to this successful multi-agency operation in London. Working in partnership with other law enforcement agencies is central to the Commission’s approach to keeping gambling fair and safe.”
