Dougherty County -- Gambling machines and counterfeit items seized in the last year were destroyed, crushed by a huge bulldozer.

 Five gambling machines that were confiscated from Wild Bill's bar on Sylvester Road in November 2003 were smashed at the Dougherty County landfill. Also bulldozed, 3,000 counterfeit music CD'S and clothing items that were seized from stores around the county in the last year.

 All were confiscated in civil complaints, and were destroyed now that those cases have been settled. Dougherty District Attorney Ken Hodges said "I want the message to be clear, that we're still going to go after gambling machines if they are here in Dougherty County. And we will destroy them."

Area churches were given most of the counterfeit clothing items that were seized from 14 stores.

 These items destroyed, mostly hats, purses, and wallets, were what the churches did not want.
