Lubbock Police Bust Illegal Gambling Operations
The Lubbock Police Department Special Operations unit served two search warrants on local “eight liner” establishments around 3:00 p.m. on Monday. Warrants were served on the Midas Game Room at Slide Road and an unmarked, unnamed building at Avenue A being used as a gambling parlor.
As part of an ongoing investigation, detectives in the unit established probable cause to believe these businesses were running illegal gambling operations, according to a news release from LPD.
Detectives are still processing evidence at the scenes at this time.
