CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — Three people in Annaville were arrested on Wednesday and charged for allegedly keeping a gambling place, according to the Corpus Christi Police Department blotter.

The blotter states 31-year-old Jeffrey Arredondo, 46-year-old Melinda Cruz and 51-year-old Jessie Yanez were arrested and charged with engaging in organized crime, gambling promotion, keeping a gambling place, and possession of gambling devices.
