MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - Alabama Attorney General Luther Strange is very familiar with VictoryLand, and he's well aware that it reopened Tuesday to hundreds, if not thousands, of customers.
Strange, whose office obtained a search warrant in August 2013, successfully fought to keep more than 1,600 machines and more than $260,000 in cash seized in a raid by his office on the Macon County facility.
Tuesday, Strange issued a statement that reads:
Macon County, Sheriff Andre Brunson and District Attorney E. Paul Jones are on the record stating they have had the machines reviewed by independent experts who ensured they comply with the law.
The facility reopened at 2 p.m. Tuesday with approximately 500 machines.
