 Three Arrested For Keeping Gambling House and Engaging in Gambling 


 

On Wednesday, April 24, 2013, PCSO undercover detectives arrested three men for running a gambling house in Homeland (near Fort Meade).

That day, two PCSO undercover detectives walked up to the Citgo gas station located at 6005 US Hwy 17 South in Homeland and were solicited by three men to engage in a bingo form of gambling in a trailer they had set up.  The detectives were told that in exchange for money, they could play a game with ping pong balls that had numbers on them, similar to bingo, and that they also might win a number of prizes, including Nascar logo jackets, or an Xbox 360 or Nintendo 64 game systems.  The suspects told the detectives that they thought it was legal to operate this gambling trailer because they had never been arrested before.

All three suspects were arrested and charged with one count Keeping Gambling House and one count Gambling.  All three were booked into the Polk County Jail, and have all three posted bond and been released.
