WHITE HALL, Ala. (AP) - State police have conducted an early
morning raid at the White Hall Gaming Center and seized more than 200 machines and hundreds of thousands of dollars in cash.

A spokesman for Gov. Bob Riley says the Governor's Task Force on Illegal Gambling organized the pre-dawn raid Thursday and seized machines suspected of being illegal slot machines.

No charges were immediately filed.

Whitehall resident Doris Gresham says she was in the gaming
center when state troopers arrived about 5 a.m.

The bingo hall is located on U.S. 80 about 20 miles west of
Montgomery.

    I have worked hard all my life to be able to spend my money as I see fit. If you do not stop me from having fun doing what I would like to do, I will continue. It is not like I spend money that I need to pay bills. Maybe they should take away what you would like to do also.

    Good, I am glad the illegal machines won't take anyone else's money. Cheating people out of thier money is wrong and the (Sweet Home Alabama Commercials) are selling this illegal stuff to our population and wanting it to be legal! Keep this kind pf crime out of our state!
