      $64,000 seized in a gambling raid

      Sheriff's deputies have seized nearly $64,000 after raiding what they say was a gambling business in northwestern South Carolina.

      27 people were ticketed in the raid last week.

      Deputies say they seized $41,000 Ronald David Pitts of Anderson, identified as the owner of the business.

      Deputies say they got a tip about the games at a house in Greenville on Jan. 14. Deputy Matthew Armstrong says the operation was not considered a 'friendly game' of poker because investigators were told there would be a high buy-in to get into the game.

      Deputies say they found poker chips, gambling tables and five video gaming machines.

      Those ticketed in the case are to appear in court Feb. 17.
