Another casino-type gaming operation brought down by police, this time in Springdale

SPRINGDALE, Ark.-- While the Highway Patrol, Springfield police and Greene County deputies were raiding what they called an illegal gaming operation in Springfield, a similar bust was underway in two northwest Arkansas convenience stores in Springdale.

The store owners turned themselves in after police say they found casino-style slot machines. Authorities say it is something they rarely see in Arkansas-- because the lottery is now legal, but it is still a problem.

Authorities warn gambling machines in an establishment with a license to sell alcohol are not regulated and should not be used.
