Gambling machines seized during raid at truck stop

There are allegations of illegal gambling at a southern Kentucky truck stop.

A truck load of video poker machines left the Corbin Travel Plaza, also known as King's Truck Stop, late Wednesday night.

Federal court documents detailing alleged Oxycontin deals in north Corbin mention a drug suspect talking about playing video poker machines at King's Truck Stop and how he allegedly won $13,000.

On Wednesday night, federal agents, including some from the U.S. Forest Service, were seen carrying poker machines from the business and loading them on trailers.

Agents did not return phone calls Thursday, but the affidavit says that one suspect in the federal investigation talked about sleeping all day at a local motel and playing the gambling machines and selling Oxycontin pills all night.

No arrests were made, and no one in the truck stop wanted to comment on the raid.
