Lorain County and Ohio authorities investigate alleged illegal gambling

The Lorain County Prosecutor’s Office in conjunction with the Lorain County Sheriff’s Office and the Ohio Casino Control Commission executed a search warrant at Lucky Jackpot Entertainment at 46323 Telegraph Road.

Lorain County Prosecutor Dennis Will said the case remains under investigation.

"We took some of the motherboards and devices that were part of the investigation from the Casino Control Commission, like the machines they played on,” Will said. "There's a distinction that's being made here.

The Prosecutor’s Office is working with authorities to determine the extent of criminal activity, he said.
