RIVIERA BEACH, Fla. — SWAT teams from Riviera Beach, Palm Beach Gardens and Jupiter served search warrants at convenience stores in Riviera Beach Friday.

Police say the locations in question had arcade-style slot machine video games that allowed for gambling.

Police also found other crimes like illegal drug sales and use, drinking in public and loitering, which have been negatively impacting surrounding neighborhoods since March.
