BRADENTON, Florida — Manatee County Sheriff's deputies say more than $117,000 and more than 500 illegal gambling devices were seized recently at multiple locations.

The Bradenton Herald (http://bit.ly/1APcf1h) reports that since January, the sheriff's office has been investigating illegal gambling operations throughout the county in conjunction with the State Attorney's Office and the Florida Illegal Gaming Task Force.

According to a release, undercover investigations led to the execution of six search warrants.
