Two arrested in 8-liner raid
The Laredo Police Department has raided yet another eight liner business.
In this case it's the second time this particular business is raided for paying out more than five dollars in cash.
Last night police had a search warrant for the place located in the 23 hundred block of Jacaman Road.
At the establishment police were able to seize more than fifty one thousand dollars.
Forty thousand of that was inside the machines.
" One of the machines had well over 12 hundred dollars just in one machine. Its hard for us to believe that are willing to invest that much for a chance to win toilet paper or soap,” says Investigator Joe Baeza with the Laredo Police Department.
Also arrested were 50 year old Luo Feng and 30 year old Sergio Luna Lira.
They are facing charges of gambling promotion.
They are at the Webb County Jail pending magistration.
Police seized 193 mother boards from the eight liner machines.
