MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - The White Hall gaming center did not reopen following a raid by the Governor's Task Force on Illegal Gambling.
An attorney for the charity that operates the center, Collins Pettaway, says the center hopes to get a protective order from a judge before reopening.
Task Force Director David Barber says officers seized 101 machines and $560,000 in cash in the raid Thursday. Barber declined to say at a news conference Friday whether the task force plans any more raids. Thursday's operation in the Lowndes County community began before dawn. Officers finished seizing the machines at about 8 p.m.
Barber said he considers the machines to be illegal slot machines and hopes to get a determination by the Alabama Supreme Court.
