Wednesday, 19 November 2014

A 90-year-old woman was one of 16 people arrested by cops in America after a raid on a home poker game in the southern state of Georgia.

According to a report from WBTV.com, Mary Morgan, was charged with keeping a place of gambling, disorderly house and selling alcohol illegally.

The local police department seized the princely sum of $4,100, a couple of cars and somewhat bizarrely, lawn equipment.

"This operation was a result of a two month investigation into illegal activity at this residence which included illegal gambling, illegal alcohol sales, illegal tobacco sales, possession of cocaine, ecstasy, marijuana and spice," said Deputy Chief Mark Scott.

According to police, the raid followed a two-month investigation and a string of complaints about illegal activity at the property.

Real money poker is illegal in Georgia, even in home games.
