Default Washington Heights (DOMINICAN) dry cleaner allegedly a front for illegal gambling


Washington Heights dry cleaner allegedly a front for illegal gambling

The city is set to take the starch out of a Washington Heights dry cleaner that is allegedly a front for illegal gambling.

An April 1 lawsuit, which asks a judge to padlock the Melanie Fashion Cleaners on Broadway for one year, says three undercover officers who have visited the establishment talked to a counter woman about placing “a sports gambling bet on some of the current basketball games.”

The plainclothed cops placed wagers of up to $40 on the Chicago Bulls, Oklahoma City Thunder and Dallas Mavericks with the woman, who then “printed an illegal gambling slip from a laptop,” the suit says.

During a Dec. 5 raid, cops arrested Clarissa Quijada, 24, of the Dominican Republic, and seized gambling receipts, cash and gambling paraphernalia, court papers show.

Quijada was charged with promoting gambling and issued a desk appearance ticket, documents show.

“Those individuals involved in the illegal activity may still have access” to the dry cleaning store so the “opportunity for illegal activity … still exists,” the lawsuit reads.

In addition to the one-year closure, the suit seeks a $1,000 penalty for each day the illegal gambling was conducted.

Melanie Fashion Cleaners was open for business on Thursday but an employee declined to comment.
Those who find the truth hateful just hate hearing the truth.

A mind is a terrible thing to waste.....on a nigger.

If you're not catching flak, you're not over the target.
