DENVER (CBS4) – Two men are accused of running the largest sports betting operation in the state.

The Denver Post reported that a Jefferson County grand jury handed up an indictment accusing Daniel Dinner and Michael Elick with violating the state’s Organized Crime Control Act.

The indictment says some of the gamblers placed bets as high as $50,000 a week.

Veteran Denver Post sports reporter Jim Armstrong is among those named as a customer in the indictment. The Post reported that he left the paper Friday.

Other people named as alleged customers are Steve Sander, a member of the Denver Metro Sports Commission and manager of two bars in LoDo.

The district attorney’s office said Armstrong and the other customers are likely not going to be charged.
