GOURMET gambling den discovered in food shop in Alicante.
The owner of a gourmet food shop in Alicante has been arrested after a secret gambling den was discovered by police.
By day, the premises sold high-end wines and cheeses, but it is alleged that at night the proprietor held poker games for up to 40 people, which he promoted on social media.
Following a tip-off, the Policia Nacional began surveillance of the property. They raided the shop after they witnessed several people coming and going after hours, and discovered a ‘secret’ door to the gambling den hidden by a display shelf.
In addition to being charged for not having a gambling licence, it is understood that the unnamed owner of the shop will also be charged with drugs offences as 12 packs of cocaine were discovered on the premises, along with a precision scale and €420 in cash.
