Lubbock County Sheriff’s Department Releases New Details Concerning Yesterday’s 8-Liner Raids


The Lubbock County Sheriff’s Department this evening released new information concerning Monday morning’s raids at illegal 8-liner operations.

Seven Search Warrants were executed after a month long undercover operation pertaining to the         operation of illicit gaming establishments located within Lubbock County.  The Lubbock Police Department assisted the sheriff’s office in executing the warrants.

344 8-liner machines were seized, along with computers, ledgers, and merchandises intended as pay out prizes. Also, approximately $74,000 in cash was seized as well.

As of Tuesday evening, no arrests have been made, but criminal charges are pending against suspects.

The Lubbock County Sheriff’s Office states the operation stems from multiple complaints of illegal gambling, and the possible trafficking of stolen property, at several locations in direct violation of chapter 47, Texas Penal Code.

The Search Warrants were executed at the following addresses: 2121- 4th Street,  5015 University Avenue,  5029 I-27,  2910 Slide Road,  1114 FM 1585, 1411 FM 1585 and 1555 W Division in Slaton.
