Michigan Gaming Control Board announces successful settlement in forfeiture case involving shuttered storefront casinos in Flint

DETROIT, July 2, 2024 — The Michigan Gaming Control Board (MGCB) is pleased to announce the successful resolution of a significant enforcement action involving former illegal gambling establishments known as The Cellular Vault, The Vault, and The Flint Arcade that previously operated at 3301 Corunna Road in Flint. A property nuisance complaint case filed earlier this year against L.D. Lam Properties, LLC, owned by Linos Antonio Kas-Mikha, has resulted in Kas-Mikha being banned from engaging in any other nuisance in any other building or place in Genesee County.  

 “I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: Illegal gambling operations anywhere undermine the integrity of our regulated gaming industry everywhere,” MGCB Executive Director Henry Williams said. “The MGCB would like to extend its gratitude to Flint Mayor Sheldon Neeley and to all the individuals and agencies who contributed to the successful resolution of this case, including law enforcement partners and community members who provided valuable information. This case settlement is proof that when we work together and partner with other state agencies and local leaders, positive change can happen.”
After comprehensive investigations took place at 3301 Corunna Road in August 2022 and August 2023 by the Michigan Department of Attorney General and the MGCB, the City of Flint filed a complaint at the 7th Judicial Circuit Court in Genesee County and sought relief, requesting that the building be abated with all its contents removed and sold, closed, and not used for any purpose for one year. 

A settlement agreement on the complaint was reached on May 7 and included Kaas-Mikha being ordered to pay $3,500 for associated costs related to the case and prosecuting attorney fees, serving as both a punishment and a deterrent to other potential violators. 

“I want to thank the Michigan Gaming Control Board and all of our law enforcement partners who helped ensure that this illegal gambling operation will no longer take advantage of vulnerable people in our community,” Flint Mayor Sheldon Neeley said. “I hope the forfeiture of the Corunna Road establishment sends a strong message that we will hold bad actors accountable when they profit from illegal activities that threaten public health and safety.”
