Attorney General Serves Search Warrant at Victoryland
Attorney General Luther Strange serves a search warrant for VictoryLand Casino in Macon County, Tuesday. The action is taken in response to illegal gambling operations, according to the Attorney General's Office.
"Today's actions are the culmination of an investigative process over the last several months," said Attorney General Strange. "From my first day in office, I have worked to ensure that illegal gambling laws are enforced consistently across the state."
The country's largest gamblig machine manufacturers removed their machines from Alabama in 2011, including the removal of all of the gambling machines at VictoryLand. The casingo opened in December with "electronic bingo" machines that state law enforcement agents consider illegal.
The warrant served will included the seizure of several hundred machines and an unknown amount of cash from VictoryLand that will be held as evidence.
