3 Face Charges for Illegal Gambling Ring in Jefferson, Cambria Counties
Three men face charges in relation to an illegal gambling ring in Jefferson and Cambria counties. Police say thousands of dollars were involved, with bets on the lottery and various sporting events. Jefferson County officials received permission in March to wiretap the phone lines of Robert Juliette, of Punxsutawney. Over the next few weeks, they said Juliette worked on the operation with two other men, Robert Boast of Johnstown and Jeff Papalia of North Carolina. Police raided Juliette's home in April and took several notebooks, including a list of his alleged clients. Police say more arrests are possible.
