ALBANY, GA (WALB) –  Eleven people face gambling charges after Moultrie Police served search warrants on two businesses with electronic gambling machines.

Five of the suspects accused of directly operating the machines will face RICO charges for organized crime along with commercial gambling and keeping a gambling place felony charges.

Moultrie Police confiscated more than 15 gaming machines from Rufus's T-shirt Shop on Rowland Drive and Big Daddy's T-shirt Shop on First Avenue Southeast.

Police also charged six people playing the machines with gambling under the city's ordinance. Moultrie Police say the case remains under investigation and more arrests are expected.
