Grimes County authorities have arrested a sixth person in connection with an illegal game room operation.

That leaves one person, believed to be the supplier in Houston, officials are still looking for.

On Monday, the Grimes County Sheriff's Office, Montgomery County Sheriff's Office Special Investigation Unit, Grimes County District Attorney's Office and federal agents raided Todd Mission Grill in the 21000 block of FM 1774, near Plantersville.

The investigation turned up $11,000 and 41 slot machines, according to authorities.

All six arrested have been released from jail after posting $27,500 bond.

Officials say the suspects, who were tellers or managers, face a slew of charges including engaging in organized crime, money laundering, keeping a gambling place, possession of a gambling device and promotion of gambling.
