GCSO busts alleged gambling ring

GREENWOOD, SC – The Greenwood County Sheriff’s Office has arrested two men in connection with an alleged gambling ring involving “parlay cards,” which are typically used in sports betting.

According to a report from the Greenwood County Sheriff’s Office, investigators received “numerous anonymous complaints” of a parlay card gambling scheme being run at 500 Trestle Road. A Parlay card is a listing of payouts a player can receive based on the total number of teams bet in a particular parlay.

 Investigators set up surveillance and observed a pickup truck arrive at the location this past Saturday morning, pass an envelope and then leave the location, according to the report.

The report states that investigators then performed a traffic stop on the vehicle, which was driven by David Wayne Criminger, 34, of 206 Saints Creek Lane in Irmo. When investigators told Criminger the reason for the stop, he agreed to cooperate. Criminger reportedly told investigators that he had been dealing with the man on Trestle Road, identified as Marvin Hughes Worthy, 67, the entire football season. Criminger also reportedly told investigators that he would drop off parlay cards and any winnings from the previous week on Tuesdays and pick up played cards and money on Saturday mornings.

The report states that Criminger told investigators that Worthey would receive 25% of the earnings each week on card sales. Investigators found an envelope with a number of parlay cards along with $4,491.00.

Worthey was arrested on Wednesday and Criminger turned himself in on Thursday morning. Both men have been charged with bookmaking and were released Thursday on a $5,000 personal recognizance bond.
