Vice officers arrested six employees at a chain of arcades Thursday and seized 22 alleged gambling devices.

Police executed search warrants at six locations of the arcade chain in Aiea, Kalihi and the Keeaumoku area.

Police said the six people were arrested on suspicion of a total of 72 counts of felony and misdemeanor gambling offenses. Alleged gambling records also were seized.

The Honolulu Police Department worked with the city prosecutor’s office in conducting similar operations last year, HPD said.
