Suspects arrested, cash and drugs seized from South Side gambling operation, Bexar County sheriff says

Several dozen people were detained, and deputies seized drugs and cash from a rental home that was being used as a gambling operation on the South Side, according to the Bexar County Sheriff’s Office.

The bust happened in the 100 block of Tremlett Avenue near South Presa Street in a residential neighborhood on Wednesday night.

Bexar County Sheriff Javier Salazar said the Organized Crime Group executed a search warrant on the 1,500 square-foot gambling operation after they were able to establish a case following months of complaints from neighbors.

Deputies detained several people, with four headed to jail, Salazar said. Those arrested face a variety of gambling-related charges. Salazar said two people were arrested on narcotics felony warrants.

Deputies seized 42 gambling machines, drugs and $3,000 in cash believed to be gambling proceeds.
