Palmhurst (KFXV) — Three men went before a judge, accused of operating an illegal gambling machine — or eight liner — establishment out of a home located near Stewart Road and Mile 3 in Palmhurst.

Agents seized 55 gambling machines, $2,759 in cash, and two firearms.
31 year-old, Sergio Manuel Hernandez and 33-year-old, Juan Angel Gomez Perez both received a $14,000 bond for 4 charges each, and 23 year old, Raul Ramon Mares, received an $11,000 bond for three charges.
