ATHENS, TX (KLTV) - After weeks of investigation, authorities have executed a search warrant at a local business that turned up 35 mother boards believed to be used in 8-liner machines at the business.

Investigator Bryan Tower had been gathering information about Sassy's Game Room, located off of Highway 19 North, over time and finally had enough information to obtain a search warrant. Along with the mother boards that were seized, law enforcement authorities also confiscated documents, computers and $24,000 in U.S. currencies.

Authorities arrested four suspects who were charged with engaging in organized criminal activity (a felony). John Rodriguez, Samantha Rodriguez, Mary Barrows and Eula Mae Brown were booked in the Henderson County jail. 

The business and residence belonged to John and Samantha Rodriguez. Barrows and Brown were arraigned, and their bond was set at $10,000. As of Tuesday morning, the other two were still waiting to be arraigned.
