2 Walker County gambling operations shut down
JASPER, Ala. (AP) — Two more gambling operations have been shut down in Walker County.
Attorney General Luther Strange reported that his office worked with District Attorney Bill Adair to close a gambling operation involving 15 machines at the Arrowhead Golf Course and another involving 20 machines in a private building. Both raids occurred on Jan. 10, but weren't announced until Friday. The attorney general says Arrowhead was the target of a similar law enforcement operation in September.
No arrests were reported.
So far, the attorney general and district attorney have worked together to seize 80 machines, two guns and about $1,400 in cash from seven gambling facilities in Walker County.
