MARLBORO COUNTY, SC (WMBF) – Four people were arrested on Thursday, November 5, for video poker machines when the Marlboro County Sheriff’s Office and South Carolina Law Enforcement Division executed search warrants at two places in Marlboro County.

Tobie Rogers, age 42 of Bennettsville, is charged with three counts of possession of illegal gaming devices, according to a news release from Sheriff Fred Knight.

Delton W. Hubbard Jr., age 44, of Wallace, is charged with one count of possession of illegal gaming devices.

Leverne Douglas, age 46, of Bennettsville, is charged with three counts of possession of illegal gaming devices.

Javonta Deese, age 35, of Bennettsville, is charged with two counts of possession of illegal gaming devices.

The illegal gaming device charges are all misdemeanors but each person can face up to one year in jail per count.

The MCSO Investigators and SLED Agents searched the building at 215 Grace Heights in Bennettsville and a residence/shop at 3535 Delta Heights Rd. in Wallace. Almost 20 machines were recovered in full from both locations along with currency seized from the machines and the defendants.

Three people were given gambling tickets for playing the machines during the time of the search warrants.

This remains an ongoing investigation.
