*Update* A total of 7 locations across Brazos County have been raided for what is believed to be illegal gaming machines.

Monday Bryan Police and Brazos County Sheriff's Deputies busted up what investigators believe was an illegal gambling operation at a local gas station and convenience store

The Chevron gas station on Briarcrest and Broadmoor Drive is a convenient stop for gas, food and what investigators say was illegal gambling.

"There are so many people that sit up here at these machines, and they will sit there all day long and play, play, play,” said Cody Baxley who is a regular customer at the convenient store.
He says he questioned the store manager.

"I asked the guy [manager], and he just acted like it was completely legal and that's how it is done, so I went with him and said it's fine. I didn't think it was legal in any way,” said Baxley.

The Brazos County Attorney's office took their turn to confront management.

County attorney Rod Anderson didn't give out much information but said that his office had heard several reports about potential illegal activity.

Anderson says some other area convenience stores suspected of operating illegal gambling machines can expect visits from law enforcement.

The Brazos County Attorney's Office says no arrests have been made.
