A Killeen woman is accused of running an illegal gambling operation out of a local business.

Ejuna Cho Stevens was arraigned Friday on misdemeanor charges of gambling promotion, keeping a gambling place and possession of a gambling device by Justice of the Peace Bill Cooke.

Steven was arrested after police found 10 “eight-liner” gambling machines in the back room of her business, located in the 400 block on North Eighth Street in downtown Killeen.

Stevens waived her Miranda rights, and told police that she owned and operated the business, and paid customers cash for winnings on the machines more than $10. She also said she knew that owning the machines was illegal, according to police.

Cooke set Stevens total bond at $15,000.
