Three men have been arrested after a Sunday night police raid during an investigation of illegal gambling on Oak Ridge Turnpike.
Scott William Stockstill of Clinton was charged with aggravated promotion of gambling, an Oak Ridge Police Department press release said. Two other men, Jeffery Ray Smith of Kingston and William Harold Bailey of Clinton, were cited on misdemeanor charges of promotion of gambling, the release said.
It said members of the Oak Ridge Police Department Criminal Investigations Division and Special Projects Unit executed a search warrant at 901 Oak Ridge Turnpike at 9 p.m. Sunday during an ongoing investigation into illegal gambling activities.
“The investigation and subsequent raid were the result of complaints received concerning the illegal gambling operation,” the release said.
The three men have court appearances scheduled in Anderson County General Sessions Court Division II in Oak Ridge, the release said, although it did not provide the dates.
