Two Charleroi bars raided for gambling

February 14, 2013

Members of the Washington County District Attorney’s gaming task force along with Charleroi Regional police raided two Charleroi bars Thursday morning as part of a search for illegal gaming devices.

Raided were the Myford Hotel, 702 Fallowfield Ave., and M&D Bar, 731 McKean Ave. Investigators seized seven machines and more than $2,100.

District Attorney Gene Vittone said the raids were an important first step in combatting illegal gambling in the county. He added that it also addresses problem bars which have become a haven for other illegal activity.

Vittone expects that charges will be filed at a later date.
