Police have arrested two men for allegedly running an illegal poker game.
On Oct. 5, members of the New York State Police Special Investigations Unit, State Police Troop G in Saratoga and the Saratoga Springs Police Department obtained a warrant and searched 77 Van Dam St, Room 14 in Saratoga Springs. They seized about $3,000 in cash, poker chips, playing cards and poker tables.
The search warrant was the culmination of a two-month-long investigation by state police into an illegal Texas Hold’em poker game taking place on Monday and Thursday evenings.
Arrested for promoting gambling in the second degree, a Class A misdemeanor, were 44-year Joseph F. McTiernan of St. Johns Drive in Gansevoort and 27-year old Arthur S. Wexler Jr. of Tanager Way in South Glens Falls.
Both defendants were issued tickets to appear on Oct. 22 at 9:00 a.m. at the Saratoga Springs City Court.
