Charges are expected to be filed after an illegal game room bust in Spring.

Investigators with the Harris County Precinct 4 Constable's Regulatory Enforcement Unit executed a search warrant at the Triple Crown Bingo in the 8900 block of  Louetta Road on Wednesday, Aug. 21 after investigators had received complaints of illegal gambling at this location.

According to authorities, an undercover officer played a sweepstakes computerized video gambling device. The officer was paid a cash pay-out by a game room employee for winnings on the gambling devices in the amount of well over $5 on more than one occasion.

Investigators said their investigation is ongoing.
