Knox County- Flat Lick BP, Creek Mart at Flat Lick, Spur #1 in Barbourville, Williams Stop and Go in Barbourville, Spur #2 at Bailey Switch, Heidrick One Stop.

In Bell County- Exxon Friendly Mart in Pineville. A total of 49 illegal gambling devices were seized along with $62,277.00 in cash. Charges are pending.

The Kentucky Revised Statute 528.020 Promoting Gambling in the First Degree states- A person is guilty of promoting gambling in the first degree when he knowingly advances or profits from unlawful gambling activity by setting up and operating a gambling device. Promoting gambling in the first degree is a Class D felony.
