— Four men were arrested this week after drug agents found them playing a game of high-stakes dice behind the York Recreation Center, authorities say.

On Tuesday, agents with the York County Multijurisdictional Drug Enforcement Unit were patrolling the area when they spotted the four men behind the recreational center playing dice, said Lt. Mike Ligon, unit commander of York and Clover.

They found the men with a total of $2,081, Ligon said, and charged them with unlawful games and betting.

Those charged include: William Jarrod Roberts, 25; Christopher Lamont Neely, 39; Kevin Lamont Jamison, 39; and Jerry Antwan Holmes, 22, according to a York County Sheriff's report.

Police seized $1,023 from Roberts; $345 from Neely; $471 from Jamison; and $242 from Holmes, the report states. They were taken to the Moss Justice Center, ticketed with gambling and then released, Ligon said.

State laws deem gambling, even a game of dice, in public as illegal activity.
