Gambling Game Broken Up By Police At Carnival In Arkansas
Gambling is such a big piece of America that it does not matter the location, if people think they can make money they will open up a gambling operation. The location of the latest police bust was a fair in Arkansas.
Authorities arrested the operator of a "Midway Monopoly" booth at a fair in Pine Bluff Arkansas. The man, along with three other booth workers were allegedly running an illegal gambling operation.
Undercover cops went to the booth and gave twenty dollars to the attendant. They then received a net and was able to pull a ping pong ball out of the booth. The ball that was picked read the words 2 to 1.
The attendant then payed the undercover officer forty dollars. The officers kept playing the game and getting various prizes. Once they raided the booth, they seized various prizes.
PlayStation 3 games, an ATM machine attached to the booth, CD players, and Nintendo Wii games were all taken by police. They are completing their investigation and will be reporting their findings to the prosecutor.
Formal charges will then be filed against Fifty seven year old Charles Chenowith, forty year old Robert Bren, fifty eight year old Stanley Ray, and thirty six year old Frank Dell.
