MISSISSIPPI COUNTY, Ark. — More than a dozen people are facing charges after a gambling bust in Mississippi County, Arkansas.

Prosecutors said agents seized dozens of illegal gaming machines at several locations in Blytheville and Osceola Wednesday evening. They also snagged more than $100,000 in cash.
