Columbus police made another gambling bust Monday morning, this time netting 100 packages of synthetic marijuana along with nine gambling machines, authorities said.

Members of the Special Operations unit descended about 8:30 a.m. Monday at Lucky’s on 13th Avenue with search warrants stemming from an investigation, Capt. Gil Slouchick said. The search was part of an ongoing investigation into illegal gambling in Columbus that led last week to three arrests and the seizure of 15 machines between two different stores.

“We seized some gambling machines,” Slouchick said of Monday’s bust. “We also seized 100 packs of Spice.”

Spice is a name for what Slouchick called synthetic marijuana.
