CORBIN, Ky. (AP) -- Police say they have charged two men in eastern Kentucky with conspiracy to promote gambling at a food mart after customers complained about lousy winnings from the machines.
Whitley County Sheriff Colan Harrell told The Times Tribune (http://bit.ly/QKBOhU) that deputies executed a search warrant on the New Friendly Food Mart in the Woodbine community on Wednesday and found nine gambling machines in the backroom of the store. The store's owner and manager were arrested.
Harrell said the machines aren't illegal if they are used only for entertainment purposes, but using them for gambling is illegal.
He said the investigation is ongoing, and there's a "strong possibility" that others could be charged.
