The owner of a popular McDonough restaurant is behind bars after a commercial gambling bust Wednesday.

Traci McDonald, owner of Motorheads Bar and Grill in McDonough, was taken into custody after a long undercover investigation by the Georgia Bureau of Investigation. Agents executed a search warrant and said they found gambling machines and poker tables. 

The Georgia Bureau of Investigation uncovered the establishment paid cash for the credits won by players. Gambling or placing bets and winning cash are illegal in Georgia.

A spokesperson for the GBI expects more arrests in the case. Several players in the bar last night were issued citations by McDonough Police officers. McDonald is being held at the Henry County Jail.
