SAVANNAH, Ga. — As stated by federal prosecutors, illegal gambling activities have been facilitated by a Savannah-based casino boat; off South Carolina and Georgia, in the state waters. The authorities are on the move to take hold of the amount of approx $7 million that has been earned by the casino cruises. The captains of two boats and the general manager of Diamond Casino face charges of allowing illegal gambling activities that may put them behind the bars for up to five years. Filed on eleventh of this month, the charges were made public on Monday. The judge commented that the boat’s operators violate laws frequently. As per law, they must be at a distance of three miles offshore if they intend to be engaged in gambling activities. As aired by the cruise operator’s website, Diamond Royale, the 184-foot boat possessed 240 slot machines and eighteen tables for craps, poker, roulette wheels and blackjack. No comments were available from Diamond Casino’s general manager, Gregory Sicilia or his attorney, Steve Beauvais. John Sternberg, captain of one boat did not respond to a phone call for the issue.
The prosecutors intend to seize the boat and also its proceeds from illegal gambling. Documents, laptop and computers that were taken into custody led the authorities to bring the crime to light after eight months. However, it was not clear whether all gambling activities took place during the stay of Diamond Casino operators in the state waters or the same were conducted after leaving the legal zone for gambling. The official phones of Diamond Casino’s office have since been disconnected and its all cruises have been cancelled for remodeling of the boat as per its official website.
