A former illegal game room busted by Galveston County sheriff's deputies is getting new life as a police station.
Authorities seized more than $100,000 in cash and more than 100 gambling machines in a raid nearly five years ago at the old Lucky U game room in Bacliff.
After the owners were convicted of engaging in organized criminal activity, the building was turned over to the sheriff's department.
The latest news from around North Texas.
Galveston County commissioners recently approved a contract to remodel the place and now the 3,000-square-foot space will be used as a constable's office.
Constable Rick Sharp tells the Galveston County Daily News the new offices will replace "shoe box" quarters his people share with a justice of the peace.
