SEARCY, AR - Searcy police have destroyed more than two dozen gambling devices that were destroyed in a 1999 raid.

The machines were taken from the Golden Goose arcade.  Its owner fought the police action.   Appeals in the case went to the Arkansas Supreme Court.   The appeals process ended this week.

It took fifteen minutes to smash about thirty machines in a large trash bin.

The arcade's owner says she was only operating a friendly game house and eatery.
