LADSON, SC (WCSC) -

A 60-year-old Goose Creek woman is facing charges after an illegal gambling parlor was discovered at a Highway 78 restaurant, authorities say.

Charleston County Sheriff's Office deputies and Goose Creek Police Department officers executed search warrants Tuesday at 5:30 p.m. at the LT Café and Golden Dragon Asian & American Buffet, both located off Highway 78 in Ladson, according to sheriff's office spokesman Major Jim Brady.

Brady said investigators seized a total of 30 video gambling computers and an unspecified amount of money from the LT Café. Brady said four individuals there were issued citations for unlawful betting and released on scene.

Investigators then executed a warrant at the Deerfield Drive home of the owner of the two restaurants, 60-year-old Lisa Tang. Tang was taken into custody and charged with three counts of keeping gaming machines and one count of unlawful betting.

Tang was granted a $40,000 bond during a court hearing Wednesday.
