Nine people were in custody Thursday on gambling charges after police raided a smoke shop in north Fort Worth.

Three other people also were arrested at the scene on outstanding warrants.

Armed with a search warrant, police raided Triple Sevens Smoke Shop, 1912 NE 28th St., which investigators believe was conducting illegal gambling with eight-liner slot machines via a game room.
