FRANKLIN – Investigators say something was less than above board with the way a Venango County social club has been handling its gambling operations. The Moose Lodge in Franklin was cited by the State Police Bureau of Liquor Control Enforcement on Friday. Police say the lodge failed to operate their small games of chance in conformity with Pennsylvania law and did not keep accurate records.
An Administrative Law Judge will determine the penalty the lodge could pay. Police say they could be fined as much as 5-thousand dollars.
