13 were arrested Tuesday and pleaded guilty to multiple gambling charges in Lauderdale County.

Lauderdale County District Attorney Chris Connolly said the 13 people pleaded guilty to promoting gambling and gambling device possession charges Wednesday morning in court. All of the charges were misdemeanors, according to Connolly.

The arrests came after a series of raids in late February, where Lauderdale County Drug Task Force agents confiscated 127 gambling machines from county businesses. According to authorities, the machines were giving cash rewards.
