Massachusetts authorities say a married couple were charged because they used an illegal gambling company for laundering over $1 million for their own profit.
Attorney General Maura Healey said recently that William and Bonnie Morley, had pleaded not guilty to the charges of promoting and organizing gambling, money laundering and other offences.
Authorities said that the couple owned Four Star Vending a North Andover company, and that they allegedly distributed illegal gambling devices, video slot and poker machines, through their company to social clubs, bars, and other establishments in New York and Massachusetts.
It being said that Four Star employees traveled to those establishments collecting the proceeds from the slot machines then shared the profits with the owners. Two of the employees are also facing charges in the scheme.
