Stash house tip exposes 8-liner establishment

      First 8-liner discovered in Penitas

      The Peitas Police Department and U.S. Border Patrol agents raided what they thought was a stash house.

      Instead, they discovered a recently opened 8-liner establishment with patrons gambling inside.

      The 8-liner was located at the 2100 block of Expressway 83 in Peitas.

      Authorities said the 8-liner is the first to be discovered in Peitas.

      Four people were illegally gambling inside, and one of them was detained during the investigation.

      A total of $329 and 24 machines were confiscated during the raid, and the manager was questioned.

      She told authorities she was being paid $300 to manage the 8-liner.

      Authorities are still investigating as the owners of the 8-liner establishment have not yet been identified.
