Area bars cited for gambling

By Regina Russo – bio | email

(FOX19) - Fourteen bars in Middletown and Trenton were cited this week, amid allegations of illegal gambling, part of the state's crackdown on illegal gambling machines.

Working on several complaints, investigators from Middletown, Monroe and the Butler County Sheriff's office entered the bars just before noon on Jan. 27, confiscating bank records, illegal gambling machines, and money.

It is a violation of their liquor licenses to have gambling machines that pay money to patrons on the property.
