27 individuals have been arrested as part of a six-month investigation into an illegal gambling ring in California.

Santa Clara police said they seized firearms, gambling machines and $70,000 in cash. This marks the second time police have attempted to break up the suspected gambling ring.

In November 2013, The FBI, Drug Enforcement Agency and San Jose Police Department served warrants at multiple San Jose locations to break up a sizable illegal gambling ring run out of San Jose coffee shops.

All suspects have been booked into the Santa Clara County Jail.
