A total of 148 gambling machines and $15,611 in cash, along with other items including suspected stolen property, were seized by officers with the Lamesa Police Department during a mid-day simultaneous raid on three separate “game room” locations on Monday. Alex Mejia Jr., 36, of Lamesa, was arrested at one of those locations on a warrant issued for parole violation.

Alwan Sr. said. “Officers executed three search warrants in connection with investigations into illegal gambling activity,” Chief Alwan said.
