Greer PD awarded with video poker assets

U-S Attorney Walt Wilkins presented a check for $1.3 million to the Greer police department Wednesday. The money was part of assets from a multi-million dollar video poker ring that led to the arrest of Billy Hindman back in 2007.
“This money represents the joint partnership that we have,” said Wilkins.  “And we can now give a portion of this money back to the Greer Police Department so they can buy cars and uniforms that are desprately needed.” 
That’s U-S attorney Walt Wilkins. Hindman agreed to pay $9 million in fines after pleading guilty to running the operation in the upstate.
