Slot machines seized from Grocery Store in Huntington Station after complaints from neighbours, Suffolk Police say

Suffolk County police say they arrested two people and seized six illegal slot machines from a grocery store in Huntington Station on Friday night.

This is the second time the grocery store, located at 1962 New York Ave., has been raided for illegal illegal gambling.

Police said they were responding to numerous complaints from neighbors about Yary’s Deli and conducted an inspection with the State Liquor Authority around 9:45 p.m. Friday. Police were joined by the Huntington Fire Marshal and code enforcement officers, police said.

Police arrested the manager, Randall Placido-Gonzales, 20, of Huntington Station, who was charged with misdemeanor possession of a gambling device, police said.

Police also arrested Karla Osorio, 45, from Huntington station and charged her with illegally dealing with a child after allegedly selling alcohol to a minor. Police said she was also charged with false identity for allegedly giving a false name to police.

It was not immediately clear whether Placido-Gonzales or Osorio were represented by counsel.

In addition to the slot machines, police said a cash counter was seized.

The State Liquor Authority issued seven violations and the Huntington Fire Marshal issued two violations. City code enforcement officers will issue violations at a later date, police said.

Police previously raided the grocery store in 2017, when it was called Chiquito Deli. During that raid, police arrested former manager Juan Antonio Susana Corona and said they found about 30 people in the basement with dice tables, dice, Joker Poker machines, money and drugs.
