MALAKOFF, TX (KLTV) -

Three women have been indicted for their involvement in operating an illegal game room in Malakoff. 

Regina Jones, 54, of Gun Barrel City, Judy Palmer, 67 of Payne Springs, and Cheryl Nicole Norman were all formally charged with engaging in an organized criminal activity. 

Norman was also indicted for possession of a controlled substance.

On February 1, deputies with The Henderson County Sheriff's Office raided the Hippy Hut Game Room, located in the 10,000 block of State Highway 31 in Malakoff, following an undercover investigation into illegal gaming in the building. 

Palmer was reportedly the owner of the business. Jones was the manager and Norman was the attendant in charge.

According to an arrest affidavit, the owner of the building said they rented the building to Palmer. On Feb. 9, an investigator contacted Palmer to see if he could talk to her about the game room but Palmer said she would not until she had a chance to talk to her attorney.

The sheriff’s office obtained a warrant for Palmer’s arrest on Feb. 15 and she was booked into the Henderson County Jail. She was released the following today on $10,000 bond.
