LEXINGTON COUNTY SHERIFF'S DEPARTMENT

— A suspect turned himself in three days after investigators seized six illegal video gambling devices stored in sheds outside a home on Bradley Drive near West Columbia.

Marion Henry Maner IV, 44, turned himself in to the Lexington County Sheriff’s Department on Wednesday and he was booked at the Lexington County Detention center at 4:55 a.m., according to a press release from the department.

He was released from the detention center after posting bail totaling $2,000, the release stated.

Arrest warrants say Maner possessed six unmarked Pot-O-Gold style video poker devices. On Monday, a Lexington County magistrate ruled that each of the six unmarked devices were illegal video gambling devices, the release stated.
