PHOENIX (AP) - Arizona Department of Gaming investigators and Phoenix police have made several arrests after serving four search warrants linked to illegal gambling.

Authorities say two of the warrants served Thursday evening were for Phoenix businesses and two other warrants were served at residences in Glendale.

They say those arrested in connection to the businesses will be facing multiple charges including operating an illegal gaming facility, promotion of illegal gambling and racketeering.

Gaming investigators have been looking into one business for nearly a year and found it was operating as an illegal poker room.

Authorities say the illegal gambling operation allowed members to gamble during poker games and tournaments inside the business.
