GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. – Two men have entered guilty pleas to charges stemming from a gambling ring run out of a west side bar.
Barry Lott, 66, of Byron Center, and Mark Stouten, 73, of Grand Rapids, pleaded guilty to one charge each of Gambling & Taking Bets Monday. The plea means other charges, including conspiracy and possession of gambling paraphernalia, were dropped.
Police told FOX that they received a tip last year of illegal betting going on inside Putt Putt’s Bar on West Fulton Street.
A third man, Kevin Michael McKenny, 39, is also charged in the gambling ring.
