Two Upstate men are being held on charges of laundering more than $140 million in connection with an illegal gambling operation.
Bobby Mosley and Michael Caldwell have been charged with operating an illegal gambling business in Piedmont. Also named in the indictment were the firms Gateway Systems, Frontier Software Systems and Frontier Gaming.
The federal government seized $242 million of real estate from the men and the three companies. Federal prosecutors accuse the men of laundering more than $144 million in an illegal operation that has been going on since 2005.
Mosley and Caldwell are being held on a $100,000 bond, and it wasn't known if they had attorneys. The report says the Federal Bureau of Investigation seized all weapons in the men's possession.
