Jury trial scheduled in 8-liner gambling case

Waco – Prosecutors and defense attorneys are picking a jury today for a trial beginning on Wednesday in 54th District Court of a man accused of engaging in organized criminal activity by operating an 8-liner gambling parlor at 1808 W. Waco Dr.

Raed Alzreiqui is charged with the offense in connection with the Class A misdemeanor of illegal gambling activity. That offense is punishable by as much as one year in the County Jail or a $4,000 fine, or both.

If the offense concerns engaging in organized criminal activity, the punishment may be enhanced to felony status if on trial the offense is shown to involve a combination of fraud, forgery, money laundering, deceptive practices, computer crimes, bribery and corrupt influence, perjury and other falsifications in crimes against public administration.


  1. Question, is Sheriff Candidate Randy Plemons going to pose with the illegal machine again before giving them back to his Campaign Treasurer, or is he just going to give them back forego the usual fanfare that he seems to demand every time the Sheriff's Office hands out a parking ticket?

  2. Wonder who owns those slot machines????? I guess I would be rich to and live in a big ugly house if I finaced machines, had them taken by the law and then got them back and found another scape goat to take the fall. Interesting little cycle.

  4. Great post! Thanks for sharing this one. And two thumbs up for the police. Good job!

  5. I guess the police did a good job. If they continue to do raids in arcades and other establishments, then, I guess the problem with illegal gambling will surely come to halt. Thanks for the information.
