HARTSVILLE, SC (WMBF) – A Darlington woman was taken into custody after a gambling house was allegedly found during the execution of a search warrant.

According to a press release from the Darlington County Sheriff’s Office, Shannon Marie Witherspoon, 40, was charged with five counts of possession of gambling devices and one count each of operating a gambling house, unlawful games and betting, and betting.

The suspect has since been released from the Darlington County Detention Center on a $10,000 bond, the release stated.
