NYPD and federal officials raided a building in Chinatown believed to be the center of a network of illegal gambling activities Monday. Officials raided the six-story building at 35 and 37 East Broadway shortly before 6 p.m., a culmination of an investigation dubbed "Operation Snake Eyes" in a reference to the game of dice. Law enforcement sources said the building hosted a group of illegal gambling operators on floors 1, 3, 4 and 6 over at least the last two years. Games like mahjong, pai gow poker and computer-based slots were offered in nearly half the building's suites. In all, 11 people were arrested on gambling charges, officials said. View Source.
