DOTHAN, AL (WSFA) -
Court documents obtained by WSFA 12 News show just how large the property seizure was at Dothan's Center Stage gaming facility Wednesday.
Armed with a warrant, Alabama Attorney General Luther Strange's agents confiscated a total of 691 machines and cash totaling $283,657. The property is being securely stored in Montgomery pending a final forfeiture ruling.
The filing in Circuit Court of Houston County indicates that the AG's office has filed a petition claiming that the money was being used as bets or stakes in violation of state law. As contraband, the AG's office says the money should be forfeited to the State of Alabama General Fund.
The court filing gave an extensive identification listing on each gaming machine running nearly 25 pages in length. The AG's offices is petitioning the court saying the property is illegal contraband and should be destroyed.
Center Stage officials said during a news conference called Thursday afternoon that its attorneys disagree with the AG's decision to seize the machines.
