POLICE: Illegal Shot House Busted, Poker Machine Confiscated

Police said a weekend call for loud music netted and arrest and cleared out an illegal shot house.

Greenville Police said they got the call shortly before 7 p.m. on Sunday to 1102 Jones Street.

Officers said once they got there, nearly 20 people were in front of the house cleaning up solo cups.

Once inside, police said they found a video poker machine in one bedroom, nearly $270 in cash, and evidence that the home was functioning as an illegal liquor establishment, or shot house.

Police arrested Cynthia Powell on charges of operating a video gaming machine, possession and selling of alcohol without a permit, plus marijuana charges.

Jailers said they had no record of Powell being booked in the Pitt County detention center, therefore a photo of the suspect was not readily available.
