WARNER ROBINS, Georgia (WMGT/41NBC) – The Georgia Bureau of Investigation Commercial Gambling Unit executed four search warrants in Houston County for violations of Georgia’s commercial gambling laws.
Agents also made four arrest in connection to illegal gaming: Kevin Huggler, 37, Warner Robins; Kyong Huggler, 62, Warner Robins; Dennis Huggler, 65, Warner Robins; and William Wright, 36, Bonaire.
With the help of the Warner Robins Police Department, the Georgia Lottery Corporation and the Georgia Department of Revenue, agents issued search warrants at three businesses and a home.
The Warner Robins businesses included Lucky’s Boutique #1 at 748 North Houston Road, Ste. J, Lucky’s Boutique #2 at 2507 Moody Road, Ste. C, and Lucky’s Boutique #3 at 813 North Houston Road, Ste. C.
While searching the locations, agents collected evidence related to crimes of commercial gambling and seized monetary assets gained from the illegal use of gaming machines.
Agents say all of the business locations are currently licensed to operate Coin Operated Amusement Machines. However, during the course of the investigation, agents discovered customers were receiving cash payouts for winning credits.
In Georgia, credits may only be redeemed for lottery tickets and/or store merchandise.
