Illegal Gaming Machines Found In Newport

While many of us were sound asleep Monday night, police in Newport were busy raiding a local business.

Tips from the public led police to a business on Chatam Street. It's an eBay type style business called Anitas that's a pick up station where people could go to sell items on-line. But police say what they found late Monday night was actually four illegal gaming or video poker machines, even people playing them in the back of the business at the time. They arrested Lou and Alicia Mitchell of Newport, and seized over sixty five hundred dollars.

Police say more arrests are pending.
