VIDEO: WDEL first identifies illegal gambling last year, police now bust it

A Southbridge gas station is busted for illegal gambling, an operation WDEL uncovered and told police about last year.

The coin in/coin out bull dozer or pusher machine gives players the opportunity to win money.

The illegal gambling machines at two gas stations in the city and one in New Castle County were first brought to attention of police by WDEL in October of last year.

Jonathan Kidane, owner of the BP gas station on South Heald Street, has been arrested and faces charges of possession of an illegal gambling device.

The machine was removed by the state's Division of Alcohol and Tobacco Enforcement.
