PLAQUEMINE – State Police say one man has been arrested after a month-long investigation into an illegal gambling operation at an Iberville Parish Mexican grill.

Louisiana State Police say 45-year-old Adolfo Gonzalez-Lopez was booked into the Iberville Parish jail on four counts of gabling by electronic sweepstakes device.

On Nov. 4, the LSP Gaming Enforcement Division opened an investigation after receiving credible information of a computer based casino at the “La Rumba Mexican Grill” in Plaquemine. Investigators say multiple undercover operations revealed that illegal gambling was consistently taking place at the restaurant.

Thursday, troopers executed a search warrant at La Rumba Mexican Grill, seizing a desktop computer and multiple hard drives.

State Police say the investigation is still ongoing and further arrests may be pending.
