SEARCY, AR - Deputies with the White County Sheriff's Department raided two businesses in Judsonia Tuesday that authorities say featured illegal gambling machines, "billiard hustling" and bootleg liquor.

At approximately 4:30 p.m. Tuesday, Sheriff Pat Garrett and more than a dozen detectives joined members of the Arkansas State Police in raiding businesses suspected of running illegal casinos in the C.W. Road Strip Mall, particularly Pop's Hideaway and T.J.'s Tanning Salon. 

Police say they found pool tables, a professional poker table, electronic casino games and various other games inside Pop's Hideaway. 

Charges are expected to be filed against Revel Orville "Pop" Moore and Mike Johnson, both of White County, following a review of the case.

Four similar gambling operations have been raided by White County authorities since 2001.
