On August 5, 2011, officers of the Waynesboro Police Department lawfully seized the following U. S. Currency and gambling devices pursuant to O.C.G.A. § 16- 12- 30: Four Thousand Onet Hundred Twenty-Eight Dollars ($4,128.00) in U.S. Currency, First Defendant In Rem; One (1) Georgia Skill Gambling Machine S/ N CRJ2008 CO1574, Second Defendant In Rem; One ( 1) Georgia Skill Gambling Machine S/ N CRJ2009 2314, Third Defendant In Rem; One (1) Georgia Skill Gambling Machine S/N CRJ2005 008586, Fourth Defendant In Rem; One (1) Georgia Skill Gambling Machine S/ N CRJ2008 001750, Fifth Defendant In Rem. 2. The machines and currency were seized at 249 East 6th Street, Waynesboro, Burke County, GA. The known owner and interest holder of the machines, as well as the First Defendant In Rem, is not known. The abovenamed Defendants are all of the Persons, Partnerships, Associations or Corporations known to the Plaintiff that have or may have any interest in and to said First Defendant In Rem through the Fifth Defendant In Rem. The machines and currency are currently located in Burke County and in the custody of the Waynesboro Police Department. 3. Venue is proper in Burke County. The said first Defendant In Rem through the Fifth Defendant In Rem were used in, intended for use in, used to facilitate, or derived from or realized through a violation of O.C.G.A. § 16-12-22, and its Article, commercial gambling and as such, constitute contraband. 4. O.C.G.A. § 16-12-30 states in part: “Every gambling device is declared to be contraband and subject to seizure and confiscation by any state or local authority within whose jurisdiction the same may be found.” O.C.G.A. §16-12- 20 (2) states that a “ ‘Gambling device’ means any contrivance which for a consideration affords the player an opportunity to obtain money or other thing of value, the award of which is determined by chance even though accompanied by some skill, whether or not the prize is automatically paid by contrivance.” 5. The machines seized and described herein are “gambling devices.” The machines are operational only when a player initiates action using currency or an equivalent purchased from the facility operator. The machines cease each play based on an internal function, not on any skill displayed by the player. Each play gives the player an opportunity to obtain points. Points are then traded for consideration within the facility containing the machines. 6. O.C.G.A. §16-12-30 provides that the appropriate remedy for the disposal of the contraband machines is destruction by the sheriff of the county in which the machines arelocated. Upon completion of the destruction, the sheriff shall forward to the

revenue commissioner a certificate containing the serial number of each device destroyed. 7. O.C.G.A. § 16-12-32 states in part that, “all property…realized from a violation of this article or which is located within any gambling place… is declared to be contraband and may be seized and forfeited as provided in this code section.” The First Defendant In Rem is “property” realized from violations of this article in that the currency is the proceeds of gambling transactions between defendant, Sin Woog Kang, and his customers. Furthermore, the First Defendant was located within and seized from a gambling place as contemplated by O.C.G.A. § 16-12- 20(3). WHEREFORE, the State prays that the Court will declare that: that process issue in terms of law requiring the Defendants and Owners to answer this action of condemnation; that an Order issue directing the Waynesboro Police Department to seize and hold said First Defendant In Rem through the Fifth Defendant In Rem until further order of this court. the First Defendant In Rem is property realized from a violation (s) of the O.C.G.A. provisions relating to gambling; said currency located was within a gambling place;. E) Second, Third, Fourth and Fifth Defendants In Rem seized by the Waynesboro Police Department are gambling devices within the meaning of O.C.G.A. § 16-12-20 and order their destruction in accord with the law; F) and consequently order the First Defendant In Rem be forfeited to the Waynesboro Police Department in accordance with O.C.G.A.§16- 12-32 and G) the Plaintiff has such other and further relief as this Court may deem just and proper.
