What used to be the Country Kitchen restaurant in Hebbronville is now becoming their latest 8-liner gameroom. The gaming machines were moved in on Tuesday.
It's just the latest example of the growing gameroom culture in the Jim Hogg County city. Officials say there are at least a dozen gamerooms in Hebbronville.
An investigator with the Jim Hogg County Sheriff's Department said that they cannot go after the gamerooms without the blessing of the county attorney, and right now, there is no county attorney. So there's nothing they can do.
In previous years, the county has seized 8-liner machines and prosecuted gameroom cases where cash payouts were being made.
