Charges leveled in Bay Area card room raids

San Francisco Examiner,  Friday, March 4, 2011 at 9:40:23 AM

A San Bruno card room remains shut down following Bay Area-wide state and federal raids Wednesday that netted 14 arrests on racketeering, loan-sharking and narcotics charges.

A San Francisco federal grand jury indictment unsealed Thursday in connection with the raid charged 15 people with racketeering, loan-sharking and narcotics offenses linked with gambling facilities Artichoke Joe's in San Bruno and The Oaks Card Club in Emeryville.

The indictment, which resulted in 14 arrests, charged two individuals, Ding Lin and Hung Tieu, with extending and collecting extortionate and illegal debts at Artichoke Joe's. Neither was an employee of the casino, but the indictment alleges they conspired with an unnamed employee. the source
