Ten people were gambling inside when police attended.
Gaming tables, gaming cards, poker chips, cash, phones and alcohol were seized.
A 37-year-old Clyde North man was arrested and is expected to be charged on summons with:
•Conducting unauthorised gambling;
•Advertising unauthorised gambling;
•Providing a place for unauthorised gambling;
•Selling liquor without a licence;
•Consuming liquor on unlicensed premises; and
•Having liquor on unlicensed premises.
A further 12 people at the venue were interviewed and are “assisting police with their enquiries.”
The operation forms part of a month-long State Liquor Unit investigation into illegal gambling and trade of alcohol.
Uniform police from Glen Waverley and the Public Order Response Team were also involved.
