Local law enforcement keeping eye on closed gaming establishments

The Alamance County Sheriff’s Office, Haw River Police Department, Mebane Police Department, Alcohol Law Enforcement, and the Alamance County District Attorney’s office met Tuesday May 7 in Graham to discuss activities at locations in the County believed to be Illegal Gaming Establishments. The unified group was advised that no activity was observed after midnight May 6 through Tuesday morning at any of the eight locations who had been previously notified that enforcement action may be taken against them beginning May 6th. The decision was made to continue monitoring these locations throughout the week before declaring that all locations have in fact ceased operations.

The decision was made to continue monitoring these locations throughout the week before declaring that all locations have in fact ceased operations. 

On Friday May 3, a hearing was held in Raleigh, NC requesting the court to issue a temporary restraining order against enforcement activity. The request for TRO was filed by River Reels LLC which operates Country Bargains and Haw River Bids in Haw River, The Little General, and Heads or Tails in Mebane. 

Superior Court Judge Bryan Collins found no basis for the request and denied the TRO.

All Law Enforcement in Alamance County is committed to keep a watchful eye for any illegal gaming locations within all jurisdictions of the County.
