WACO (AP) - State authorities have charged four Central Texas residents after finding evidence of illegal gambling at unlicensed horse races.

The Waco Tribune-Herald reported Friday that the suspects are charged with felony racing without a license.

Concerned residents in March tipped off authorities about large crowds on Saturdays for races on strips of land. Affidavits indicate undercover agents made bets on separate unlicensed horse races in Elm Mott and Axtell.

Records show 53-year-old Carol Fuchshuber Allen and 54-year-old William Wareham, both of Elm Mott, were arrested Wednesday.

State agents in late April arrested 42-year-old Marcos Don Ibanez and 60-year-old Nicholas Jaimes, both of Waco.

All four suspects have been freed on $5,000 bonds. Jail records did not list attorneys for them.

Gambling is permitted only at licensed, regulated races in Texas.
