Four Arrested in Boise for Running illegal Poker Houses

BOISE, Idaho (Associated Press) — Boise police say they've flushed out an illegal gambling operation with the arrest of four people, including three from one family.

Timothy J. Lough and his wife, Jo Anne Lough, were arrested on misdemeanor gambling charges on Tuesday along with their son, Travis Jay Lough.

Also taken into custody was David Andrew Deboer.

The law enforcement agency in Idaho's capital city says it had gotten numerous calls pointing to a card house being run at a pair of locations just southwest of downtown.

After securing search warrants, officers found poker tables, chip and cards — all pointing to an operation run for profit.

Several people playing cards at the time of the sting were cited and released.

Apart from bingo, horses and the Lottery, gambling is illegal in Idaho.
