Ten arrests made in $30M sports betting operation in Queens

MINEOLA, N.Y. -- Ten men were arrested and two others are sought on charges of being part of a multimillion-dollar sports gambling operation.

Authorities said a "wire room" in Queens handled bets on college and professional football. The alleged ringleaders are brothers.

Investigators said undercover detectives made bets between March and early November, but they estimate the operation took in $30 million the past five years.

The 10 men arrested Monday pleaded not guilty to promoting gambling and conspiracy. Each faces up to four years if convicted. A lawyer for the two alleged ringleaders did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Men gamble. Someone has to cover the bets. These 10 guys apparently made lots of money. I am jealous of these 10 men!
