Only a week after two men were arrested in Decatur for promoting gambling, another man is under arrest on the same charges.
After Decatur Police received complaints about illegal gambling at a business in the 1200 block of Danville Rd. SW, investigators went to the business and found an employee, Francisco Jose Ramirez.
According to police, illegal gambling devices and an undisclosed amount of U.S. currency were seized.* The City of Decatur Revenue Department also cited the business for smoking and license violations.
Ramirez was arrested for promoting gambling and placed in the Morgan County Jail on a $300 bond.
Decatur Police remind you that all suspects are considered innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
*Items were seized “pending condemnation proceedings”.
