Police Raid Bingo Halls In Jacksonville

Police raided Jacksonville's three remaining beach bingo halls Friday night.

Officers served search warrants and seized cash, equipment and illegal gaming machines.

T&T Bingo on Henderson Drive, Down East Beach Bingo on Bell Fork Road and L&D Bingo in the New River shopping center were closed down all at the same time around 8:35pm by undercover officers and detectives with the Jacksonville police department.

Three illegal gaming machines were seized from Down East Beach Bingo. Police say they found them in a back room, separated from the bingo tables by a sheet-rock wall with a viewing window cut out.

Officers say the investigation is just beginning and more arrests are expected.
