Richland County, SC (WLTX) - Richland County deputies have arrested a woman they say was operating an illegal gambling house.
Betty Graham, 73, has been taken into custody.
Officers say a Crimestoppers tip led them to a home on Stone Street. When they went inside, they say they found seven machines that were used for illegal gambling. According to Sheriff Leon Lott, officers also found ledgers that he says Graham used to keep information on payouts, profits, loss, and IOUs.
Officers say they also found a revolver, over $6,600 in cash, and a glass jar with marijuana inside.
Lott has recently announced a crackdown on illegal gambling operations and internet sweepstakes.
