Mart, TX — A McLennan County man is behind bars while authorities investigate a gambling operation at a Mart convenience store.
Manjinder Singh, 25, is charged with several gambling charges, including keeping a place of gambling, gambling promotion, and possession of gambling device and on a federal immigration detainer without bond. Singh is reportedly the store owner’s nephew.
