Salem, Mo. — Dorsey Williamson, 71, of Thayer, Mo., will appear before Fulton County Circuit Judge Tim Weaver on March 12 on charges of running an illegal gambling house and keeping gaming devices in a building.
Williamson was arrested Thursday, Feb 26. and is free on a $5,000 bond.
The Mammoth Spring businessman was arrested following an undercover Fulton County Sheriff’s investigation that resulted on raids at a building on the north side of the 200 block of Main Street where the slot machines were confiscated and at Ozark Heritage Mall, 305 Main St., where the game tickets were being redeemed for cash.
Williamson was an owner of the building where the slot machines were found and Ozark Heritage Mall and operated the popular Stateline Steakhouse on the Ark/Mo state line.
He also owned Accents of Christmas, a store located across the street from the Stateline Steakhouse in Mammoth Spring. That building burned down two years ago.
