The Merced County Sheriff’s Department seized three electronic slot machines from a Delhi business and arrested the owner on Saturday.
The sheriff’s department, working in conjunction with the Merced County Code Enforcement and the California Department of Justice Bureau of Gambling Control, took the electronic slot machines from a business in the 9800 block of Stephens Street in Delhi.
In addition to the machines, agents and deputies seized an undisclosed amount of cash from the illegal operation. Deputies arrested the owner of the business, Angelica Saucedo, and released her on a citation for possession of the illegal gambling machines.
The seizure stemmed from an operation earlier this month targeting the sale of alcohol to minors. Deputies and agents from the Bureau of Alcohol Beverage Control witnessed the gambling machines inside the business.
