AMARILLO -- Five people arrested in connection with Illegal Gambling here in Amarillo were rearranged today.

Santino Castillo, Raul Montes, Mario Castillo, Jessica Rios, and Anthony Diaz all plead not guilty to gambling and money laundering charges in federal court.

A 14-count indictment was handed down back in March against the five suspects.

According to court documents, evidence to the illegal gambling operations were found during drug raids that happened back in September.

The businesses connected to the gambling were raided later the same day.
