Six Senior Citizens Among Those Arrested for Role in Illegal Gambling Ring

Ten individuals, including six senior citizens, have been busted for running an illegal gambling ring in Indianapolis.  An 83-year-old man was among those arrested.

Detectives also confiscated a little over $4,400 in cash. Officers removed pull tab machines, 13 brown boxes, and some suspected cocaine, according to WISH-TV.

Prosecutors have charged the suspects with professional gambling.  Police had conducted raids on the same property twice in the past two months.

Those arrested include 39-year-old Cherron Coleman, 47-year-old Tracey Jones, 49-year-old Felicia Pettigrew, 53-year-old Andrew Laury, 63-year-old Sam Byrd, 64-year-old Judy Buckner,  65-year-old Walter Meredith, 75-year-old John Walton, 78-year-old Eddie Callaway, 83-year-old Calvin Butts.

Police estimate that local gambling houses could make as much as $2 million a year.
