State and federal investigators on Wednesday raided an online gambling company in Garden Grove suspected of cheating hundreds of investors out of as much as $20 million. The Orange County raid is part of a broader crackdown by state authorities on dozens of suspected "boiler room" operations in Southern California that allegedly prey on unsophisticated investors by persuading them to pour money into dubious Internet enterprises.

Los Angeles police and other local authorities raided the offices of an Internet gambling company Thursday as part of an investigation of one of the most high-profile operators in a legally dubious industry. The raid targeted Youbet.com Inc., a West Los Angeles company that claims to be the nation's "first interactive online horse-racing service." The company says it allows its 12,000 paying subscribers to place wagers and view races at more than 30 racetracks across the country.
