The Walla Walla County Sheriff's Office has released some information about  an investigation at a ranch near a rural area of Burbank on Tuesday, Oct. 26th


Officials did not say in detail what led to the warrant, but Walla Walla County Deputies, and investigators from the Walla Walla Police Department, The Washington State Gambling Commission and the U.S. Dept. of Agriculture participated.

The search was done at a ranch in a rural area near Burbank, between Ice Harbor Dam and Highway 124.

Apparently, no arrests were made but this search comes after what WWCSO says was a two-year investigation into allegations of illegal horse racing, illegal wagering and other related activities. They did not elaborate more on why the ranch was searched.
