A retired Low Country police officer could be in legal trouble as an investigation into an illegal gambling ring continues. Yesterday, the Town of Port Royal acknowledged that former captain Roger Karr failed a polygraph test when asked about his involvement with video poker machines in Port Royal.
Police have already arrested his fiancee in connection with the gambling ring that operated in several stores including a Coffee Shop location in Port Royal.
"At this point I do know SLED is examining all the angles and what the potential could be for additional investigations, but I'm obviously not privy to those discussions," said town manager Van Willis. "But who can determine how far this thing will actually reach?"
Karr retired days after the internal investigation wrapped up.
