Bar owner cited for having illegal gambling machines

(WMC-TV) - A bar owner in DeSoto County was cited Tuesday for having illegal poker machines inside his business.

DeSoto County Sheriff Bill Rasco says the owner of Southern Dad's Cane Creek in Hernando was given a citation for a misdemeanor violation. The gambling equipment was taken from the bar and will be stored away until the owner's trial date.

"It's one of the things were not to put within this county," said Sheriff Rasco. "They can drive to Tunica and play where it's legal rather than doing it here where it's illegal."

Sheriff Rasco says this is only the second time he has had a similar situation with illegal gambling in the county.
