Poker raid in South Carolina

Another absurd poker raid. 

Mount Pleasant police dealt a wild card when they raided a poker game
Cheseborough was attending Wednesday night, handing out citations and
seizing nearly $6,000 from 22 stunned players who had gathered for some
Texas Hold ’em.

Four people gathered at the house Thursday [the day after the raid], all of whom had been
ticketed the night before, disagreed, saying only $250 was in play when
officers entered.

The thousands of dollars police seized included cash from wallets,
pockets and purses, plus savings stowed away in a dresser drawer, all
money never intended for the card table, they said.
