Raid! Enid Police Seize Cash and Slot Machines

ENID, Okla. (AP) — Police in Enid say they've seized 25 slot machines and more than $7,000 in cash from four bars in the city.

Authorities say warrants were served Wednesday afternoon by Enid police officers, with help from the Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics and the Garfield County Sheriff's Office.

Enid police say the investigation began after several people complained of illegal gambling at the bars. Sgt. Eric Reddick says undercover officers saw people using the slot machines during visits to the bars.

Authorities seized the slot machines and about $7,226 in cash from the establishments.

No one has been arrested yet, but Reddick says authorities plan to file charges in the case.
