PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - State police say two men are facing charges stemming from a raid at a Providence social club.

WPRI-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1lEblF4 ) 83-year-old Joseph Tiberi, of Coventry, and 72-year-old Richard Tiberi, of Johnston, were charged on Sunday with bookmaking, keeping a gambling place, and conspiracy.

The station reports that a police raid on the Federal Hill’s Decatur Social Club found bookmaking records and more than $5,000 in cash and ledgers.

Police say the brothers have been identified as mob associates and have previously been charged with bookmaking.

Joseph Tiberi is scheduled to appear in court Dec. 4. Richard Tiberi is scheduled to appear Jan. 25.

It’s unclear if the brothers have lawyers.
