— Federal agents and Canadian County deputies raided at least four El Reno locations Wednesday night as part of an ongoing investigation.

The Canadian County sheriff's office has been investigating certain individuals since 2009, Undersheriff Chris West said.

According to a video from the El Reno Tribune, agents and deputies confiscated gaming machines from the Elks Lodge, the American Legion, the VFW Post and Gilmore's Pub.

“It's a collaborative effort between local police and the departments of Homeland Security and Justice,” West said.

Wednesday night's warrants sweep is not the end of the investigation, West said.
