After a year long investigation, Wood County officials took down three illegal gambling sites at the same time last Thursday night.
Several undercover agents and deputies raided gambling opeations on Highway 154, Highway 17 and Farm-to-Market Road 515.
Lucky Strike in Winnsboro, The Gate in Quitman, and Debbie's Dreams in Alba were all shut down.
"We got like 112 machines all together out of the three places," Wood County Sheriff Bill Wansley said. "I could not believe they had that many machines in that building. We had people go in and they were paying out in cash money. And, that makes it illegal."
