Last week’s raids by law enforcement on two tobacco shops in Williams County and a truck stop in Napoleon, has now ended up with a long list of serious charges against an area man.
62 year old Michael Adams of Napoleon, the owner of all the businesses that were hit, is now accused of 24 criminal charges, including 12 counts of gambling, six counts of operating gambling houses and six counts of public gambling.
The search warrants were carried out last Thursday morning at the Cut Rate Tobacco Shop in Bryan; Burley Leaf Cut Rate Tobacco in Montpelier; and the Petro 2 Truck Stop in Napoleon.
Slot machines and quarter push machines, records and cash were all seized. Additional charges may be filed.
