GRAYTOWN -- Ten eight-liner gambling machines, approximately $900 cash, and narcotics are among the items seized Jan. 5 by the Wilson County Sheriff’s Office from a house near the intersection of F.M. 2579 and C.R. 108 southwest of here.

An occupant of the home, 48-year-old Leslie Duffy Garza, is charged with one count each of gambling promotion, keeping a gambling place, and possession of gambling device, equipment, or paraphernalia. Investigator Roland Trevińo of the Wilson County Sheriff’s Office said she also faces charges relating to allegedly possessing less than 2 ounces of marijuana and 1.4 grams of methamphetamine.

Wilson County Sheriff Joe D. Tackitt Jr. said deputies executed a search warrant at the home just before 4 a.m., after a motorist from a traffic stop informed Deputy Travis Beck that she was headed there. Sgt. Thomas Silvas drove to the residence and saw the eight-liners through the window, prompting deputies to request the warrant.
