Illegal gambling raid targets Fort Mill gas station

A Fort Mill gas station has been raided for allegedly running an illegal scratch-and-play lottery ticket ring.

The Fort Mill Times writes:
“The illegal tickets were under the drawers with the money,” [Marvin Brown, commander of York County Multijurisdictional Drug Enforcement Unit] said. “Customers had to ask for those tickets specifically. The clerk asked how many tickets they wanted.”

Clerks retrieved the requested number of lottery tickets that offered prizes ranging from $5 to $5,000 from the cash drawer, authorities said.
