"Investigators found that the owner of the shop was rewarding cash prizes to consumers who got lucky on the one-armed bandits in the shop," a police spokesperson commented. For that reason, police officials raided the shop and confiscated three slot machines, alongside $1,300 in cash.
Packages of drugs
Furthermore, they found 187 packages of cannabis
in addition to 5 packages of another form of synthetic drug. Those packages were brought to a research centre for further investigation. Patel may face more charges if the test results confirm the drug accusation.
