Nine people are in custody and facing charges tonight, following simultaneous raids on two video slot machine parlors in Poth.

According to Investigator Stephen Moore of the Wilson County Sheriff’s Office, deputies and agents from the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission executed search warrants at approximately 8:15 p.m. Sept. 10 at the Lady Luck game room on Carroll Street and Lee Roy’s One Stop on U.S. 181. The managers of both establishments are among those who were arrested, he said.

Video slot machines, cash, and numerous pieces of evidence were confiscated at each location, after authorities learned that winners were being paid in cash -- a violation of state law. More arrests are possible as an investigation is ongoing, Moore said.

Anybody could see that coming along with the drugs, and maybe a shooting in the future.

Wasn't there a prostitution bust a few months ago at the oilfield cabins there in town?

Ben - you leave town and everything goes to crap. We still have pigeons though. Lots of pigeons. I'll take you on a guided pigeon hunt next time you are in town.
