State police raid illegal poker tournament

State police liquor control enforcement officials raided an illegal poker tournament in Schuylkill Haven Tuesday.

Agents from the bureau, and Schuylkill Haven State Police busted up an illegal poker tournament at the Liberty Fire Company in Schuylkill Haven.

Agents raided the game for illegal sales of alcohol without a license and gambling.

Liberty Fire company officials state that the game was a private event, and in no way sponsored or sanctioned by them. They also report that the organizers of the event told the fire company that the tournament was legal.

Over $2-thousand-dollars in cash, a sizeable quantity of beer and gambling paraphernalia were seized in the raid. The organizers of the event were not identified by authorities. Criminal charges are pending.
