GUNTERSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -

Many board games require dice to play, and it can be a lot of fun. However, when you start mixing in cash, the game can become illegal.

Police said that appears to be what happened on a sidewalk in Guntersville.

Officers have been encouraging the Lakeview community to call them if they see suspicious activity, and that is exactly what happened.

Guntersville Police received a call there was suspicious activity involving 15 people around the mailbox on Carlisle Avenue at a local housing complex.

When officers arrived, they noticed all of the subjects were walking away from the area.

After taking a closer look, police believe they may have been playing a dice game for money, as dice and cash were found and confiscated from the mailbox area where an open beer was also found.

Because the officers were unable to witness anyone physically playing a dice game, no arrests were made.

But Guntersville Police are urging residents to continue calling when they see crime in the area so they can respond.
