Underground Casino Exposed in Cameron County

Local News

Operation Bishop is still in full force in Cameron County. The District Attorney’s Office, with the help of other agencies, shut down another illegal gambling establishment. The business was at the 5700 block of Barcelona Road in Brownsville. The raid happened at a two story home that appeared abandoned. Investigators found about 50 machines. All motherboards were seized and all patrons were cited.

Two men were arrested. 35 year old Hugo Muniz and 33 year old Abel Chapa who were in charge of paying out cash to patrons. The DA’s office says this wouldn’t have been possible without the help from the Cameron County Sheriff’s Office, Homeland Security Investigations and U.S. Customs and Border Protection.
