The Corpus Christi Police Department confirmed they served search warrants at two game room locations in Corpus Christi.

"We have part of an ongoing investigation here, (and) we've been investigating this location for being involved in organized criminal activity," CCPD Capt. Denny Asbury said. "We're still in the early stages of serving the search warrant and starting the investigation and there may be arrests made."
