Zero odds.... there was just not enough money involved.
A state-level operation would have let it fester to the point
that it was serious money.
That is not to say that some do-gooder sitting inside a

(ask Mr. North) and funnel the cash into some other operation
that was "sanctioned" but unfunded...  note the recent thefts.
