SLED planning gambling raid in Horry, Georgetown Counties

Posted: Updated:

HORRY COUNTY, SC (WMBF) Following a successful operation in Edgefield County where several were arrested for participating in illegal gambling, the State Law Enforcement Division has planned similar raids in Horry and Georgetown counties.

In a press release from the Fifteenth Circuit Solicitors Office, Greg Hembree said SLED assisted officials with Edgefield County Law Enforcement in a sweep of operated video gambling machines.

A majority of the 40 arrests made were of individuals playing the machines in various locations throughout Edgefield County during the sweep.

This sweep was part of a two-year undercover operation conducted by SLED, the FBI and the local sheriff's office.

Now Hembree says SLED is planning a similar operation in Horry and Georgetown County.
