BATESVILLE, AR (KAIT) – A group's luck has run out after the
Independence County Sheriff's Office recently busted an illegal gambling
Four people now face felony charges for running an illegal gambling
house outside Batesville, while one of the four also faces a misdemeanor for
allegedly letting her grandchildren play the slots too.
County Sheriff's Office began its investigation about a year ago after
neighbors complained of a gambling house operating in a shopping center,
located at 1697 Batesville Boulevard.
"It was a little back-shop area where apparently they were
bringing in pretty good money," said Lt. Mike Mundy.
"From what we've been advised and what we've discovered in
our investigation, you rang the door bell. Somebody came from around the back,
let you in the front and then took you into the back so that you could play."
Police received a search warrant on December 12 and seized
five gaming machines and more than $2,000 in cash.
Officers surprisingly discovered the operation also catered
to more than just adults.
"When we got back there, it was obvious something was going
on," Lt. Mundy said. "There were children's toys. There was actually an area set
up for kids to watch movies and kids' movies back there."
Lt. Mundy says the kids also had their own slot machine to
play that spit out tokens instead of money.
Four people are now accused of operating a gambling house,
which is a Class D felony punishable with up to six years in the state
Those include John Gallagher, 65, Jacob Brannon, 38, William
Graveline, 39, and Barbara Rutledge, 62.
Graveline was booked into the Independence County Jail on
Tuesday but has already posted $100,000 bond.
Gallagher remains in police custody and is currently being
held in lieu of $75,000 bond.
At last check Tuesday, Rutledge and Brannon have yet to turn
themselves in or be arrested. Their bond has also been set at $75,000.
Rutledge faces an additional charge of contributing to the
delinquency of a minor, which is a Class A misdemeanor.
Investigators say she brought her grandchildren into the
gambling house and allowed them to play one of the machines.
It is unclear when the four suspects should appear again in
Region 8 News will continue to track this story and provide
updates, as more information becomes available.
