12 Busted for Illegal Gambling in Houston Bingo Hall

Just short of a baker's dozen for this gambling ring connected to several Bingo Halls throughout Houston. It doesn't stop there though because weapons including ammo were found that had the capability to 'start a small war,' according to authorities.

Paradise Bingo plus 5 other gaming centers were raided where the accused were taking in millions from illegal gambling machines and placing the cash in ATM machines said the Houston Chronicle.

'There was a bunker here; it may be something more doomsday-ish,' Harris County Attorney Devon Anderson said Friday after the search.

Authorities had been probing Paradise Bingo for almost a year with an operation of surveillance and undercover officers. The Bingo Halls are closed during the investigation.

Paradise Bingo denies any wrong doing with the weaponry posting a message on Facebook saying the charges were 'BS'.

'The guns and ammo are owned by the man who owns the bingo building,' the post read.

They also said the day after the arrest: 'Every persosn arrested from top to bottom had the same charge'.

The 12 people arrested include: Jenna Rachelle Jones Brown, Daniel Lee Radliff, Elisha Bramblett, Leslie Russell Terry, Wolfram Weissenborn, Patricia Daniel Beema.
