Chattanooga police arrested 23 people after busting a gambling operation on Brainerd Road on Monday, according to police spokeswoman Jerri Weary.

Investigators executed a search warrant at 5916 Brainerd Road, seizing $3,810 and gambling paraphernalia, including three flat-screen TVs, chips, cards and player log sheets. Police also confiscated a surveillance system, Weary said.

Police said they had been investigating the site because of the large amount of foot traffic going in and out of the building.

they would but there are folks who protect criminals and keep themselves and loved ones as well as the rest of their community in harms way because they follow the "no snitching" rule.thats why alot of women and children will not snitch on folks that abuse them,because they fear being labled snitches by their friends and they fear retaliation.some communitys promote and allow crime to grow in their communitys by following the no snitch rule.go cry to someone else when you follow the no snitch rule then are a victom of those you protect.
