HONOLULU – Attorney General David M. Louie announced today that Special Agents from the Department of the Attorney General executed a search warrant at Pure Luck located at 3012 Waialae Avenue, Honolulu, which purports to operate an arcade game room.

The search warrant authorized the seizure of illegal gambling machines and related records.


Five illegal gambling machines and various records were seized during the execution of the search warrant.

The seizure of illegal gambling machines is part of a continuing joint law enforcement operation among State of Hawaii Department of the Attorney General, Honolulu Department of the Prosecuting Attorney and other law enforcement agencies.

Attorney General Louie stated, “My office fully supports local law enforcement efforts to rid this State of enterprises that profit from illegal gambling in the State of Hawaii. I commend Honolulu Prosecutor Keith Kaneshiro for his dedication and commitment to remove illegal gambling devices from Honolulu and to disrupt and take down these illegal criminal enterprises.”

All items seized today will be turned over to the Prosecutor Kaneshiro for his office’s use in the prosecution of the illegal gambling activities.





  1. Hawaii has so many back alley gambling establishments that this particular operation is not even a drop in the bucket…why waste the effort. Bring in and okay scratch tickets where the state and the people benefit when they win and you'll lessen the "illegal" gambling much more.

  2. Left has always been left and right has always been right. Nothing has changed. Leftist joining the Republican Party is not new. People want to get elected at all cost, so they tell people what they want to hear. You are either for radical change without careful thought or you are status quo or slow and careful changes.
