past owner died. Dallas Shackleford owns it now. News said no one was arrested going before jury. I hope they lay the book at them and that they seize the rest in bell county and pineville. ITS ABOUT TIME. Way to go KSP. I salute you.

Maybe this is why the Mayor is cutting funding back in the police department and not hiring enough officers to fill the open positions. Renting to a convicted felon, so he can run a gaming parlor (poker machines and pool hall with card games on the side)What kind of Mayor doesn't oversee his rental property, maybe its like he runs the city. Wait till he brings James Pursiful back to fill a city government position. What ever happened to all the drug arrest Officer Holder was making? Cut law enforcement back and get a brown bag lunch from every backroom parlor just like the good old days..Is this what he did when he was County Judge, cut back Sheriff's budget and tell everyone a lie when they ask him a question. Wait till he secretly backs the wet vote. Fool me not once, but fooled me twice.. Hope KSP cleans the whole gang from top to bottom... Maybe we need to ask why Chief Sharpe hasn't done anything about these poker machines. They have been wide open for 15 years under his arrest powers, way before Dallas owned Cumberland Market. Officers playing the poker machines, card games in the backroom poolhall. What's up with his lack of supervision. Monkey see, Monkey do. Sharp learned well for James Pursiful, still drives him around during the daytime, eat together about everyday. Never fool me again....Mayor Kelly has brought the same old thugs back into power, maybe not in the public view but look how open they are, drug rampant dealers and poker machines, backroom card games. No wonder Officer Cowan get so many DUI's...go Cowan....
well well

KSP had numerous complaints from different people, not players, just people who are tired of the crooks in this town. KSP has gotten complaints on them because they didnt do anything about it so they finally had to make a show. Believe me, it will never make it to the grand jury, so don't get your hopes up lol

I think its hilarious that a select few are on here "Threatening" the "Rats" Number one: You don't know who the rats are, number two.....It wouldn't have taken a rat to get that place busted. The Machines are right there when you walk in the door for the world to see.....and for ANYONE to think the "Authorities" are going to fall for the "For Amusement only" BS is a few fries short of a happy meal.

If there are rats trying to get the place busted, so be it. You can't treat people the way Dallas treats them and expect them to always "Have his back" Then again, in this town for some reason half the idiots around here think it makes them cool to be associated with someone like him.

The bottom line is, the machines were right out in the open....WHY? Because they were Dallas' machines. Everyone ought to know by now that aint nothing going to happen to him and he was probably laughing the whole time. So if "Rats" are responsible, you wasted your time, if "Rats" weren't responsible, it doesn't take a genius to figure out what is going on with places who have those machines.
just me

Drugs were sold right out in the open in that place. Gambling was just the tip of the iceberg.
