Gambling Machines Destroyed in Southern Kentucky Raid

A southern Kentucky sheriff has destroyed 27 electronic gambling machines confiscated earlier this during two raids.  Laurel County Sheriff John Root told The Times-Tribune that deputies crushed the machines with a bulldozer Friday at the county's Lily Landfill.

Root says 19 machines were seized in June at a business on U.S. 25 one mile north of London.  The remaining machines were at a second location and confiscated in August.  Root said the investigations were unrelated, and a total of five people were arrested.
