MARANA, AZ (Tucson News Now) - A bar in Marana was raided by the state on Wednesday, Jan. 24, and at least four people could face illegal gambling charges.

The Arizona Department of Gaming said agents served a warrant at The Water Hole, which is located at 16540 W. Avra Valley Road.

Agents said they seized seven slot machines, records and cash.

"During the three-month long undercover investigation, agents observed the business operating illegal sweepstakes slot machines, which constitutes illegal gambling by the business and its paying customers," the ADG said in a news release.

No one was arrested Wednesday, but four people accused of operating the illegal gaming machines could face charges.
