None — The former co-owner of Reece's Las Vegas Supply and five other employees were federally indicted on charges of illegal gambling, tax fraud and obstruction of justice charges.
Reece Powers II, who operated the gambling supplies store in Dayton, is alleged to have skimmed money from operating Texas Hold 'Em poker fundraisers between 2004 and 2011. Other employees of Reece's Las Vegas Supplies located at 2223 Needmore Road are alleged to have illegally received compensation for their roles in the fund-raising tournaments.
A recently unsealed eight-count indictment in Southern District of Ohio Court also names Walter F. Dyer, Michael E. Gedeon, Jason S. Pulaski, Douglas A. Sanders and Jennifer Williams as defendants, according to a Justice Dept. and Internal Revenue Service press release.
All six were charged with one count each of conspiracy to operate an illegal gambling business and one count each of operating an illegal gambling business. Powers also was charged with one count of conspiracy to defraud the United States by impeding the IRS and one count of witness tampering. Dyer, Gedeon, Pulaski and Williams also were charged with obstruction of justice.
