Folks, is the Lacey's Spring gambling facility the only one in Morgan County? We have heard rumors that the sheriff knows of others operating around the county. It doesn't sound the least bit odd to us to hear that employees said that the sheriff gave them a license to operate. This is the same sheriff that told a local pastor that he could give or sell marijuana to the elderly. The question is what is Sheriff Ana Franklin getting out of these deals? We hear of gambling, marijuana, investments in the Title Marts, taking money from the MCSO for her own personal use, so we wonder what is next?
We also found out that one of the owners of the facility is also a member of another company that is a distributor of bingo equipment. The address of the distribution center for the bingo equipment is also the same address on Evangel Circle.
Why would an employee name Sheriff Ana Franklin as giving the facility approval to operate? To operate a legal gambling facility you would think that the facility would be required to be inspected by the state and approved.
We read the article of incorporation which states only that the company is River City Entertainment LLC but does not describe the type of entertainment the company will be participating in.
We reached out to both owners yesterday and spoke briefly to one of the owners. It is clear that the owner we spoke to firmly believes that their business is legitimate and that they have met all of the state requirements.
We can't help but wonder if the owners of River City Entertainment LLC are aware of Sheriff Franklin's history in Morgan County. Do they know about her involvement with the Title Marts? Speaking of which we noticed a comment on the blog that Anonymous claims to know what was pulled out of Flint Creek by ALEA and other Federal Agencies. The claim was serial plates and tags. Someone cleared up what was meant by serial plates by telling us that it was VIN number plates. It stands to reason if that is true and you have the VIN number plates off of missing vehicles and you find the true owner you could track the owners of vehicles that may have been stolen. Didn't some of the Title Mart cars come up missing from the Title Mart lots?
