LIBERTY, Ky. (WDKY) – Six retailers are no longer allowed to sell Kentucky Lottery products after the retailers pleaded guilty to illegal gambling charges.
The Kentucky Lottery says the Casey County Sheriff’s Office executed a series of search warrants in September. As a result, 22 illegal gambling machines were seized.
“State law is very direct about what actions have to be taken when a retailer is convicted of illegal gambling activity,” said Kentucky Lottery President and CEO Tom Delacenserie. “We appreciate the efforts of the Casey County Sheriff’s Office, and will continue to remain vigilant to watch for any other outcomes such as these. Maintaining the integrity of our legal games is paramount to our mission, and anything which violates this statute will be met with the same outcome.”
The six retailers are as followed:
-Mukeshabai Patel and Rameshkumar Patel, B&W Grocery, 7285 East Highway 70, Yosemite
-Jitendrakumar Patel, Crockett Trail General Store at 7625 West KY 70 in Liberty, Sallies Food Mart 2 at 6554 W Ky 70 in Liberty, OM Food Mart at 116 Bradsfordville Road in Mannsville, and Gia’s Supermarket at 163 Hustonville St. in Liberty
-Mamta Patel, S&T Market, 5838 Hwy 49 in Liberty
