HENDERSONVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

Fourteen people face charges in connection to a gambling operation police discovered at an apartment complex in Hendersonville.

On Friday, a citizen's complaint led officers to Monthaven Park Apartments, where they said they discovered a makeshift casino in an apartment leased to 52-year-old Jeanien Green.

"It's a one-bedroom apartment," said Det. Sgt. Jim Vaughn. "There was no furnishings in there for an apartment such as a sofa or a bed. It was solely set up for operating this gambling."

Police seized card tables, chips and supplies from the apartment, along with cash from Green's home.

"I really don't know what the amounts would be to get into the game, but I can tell you it does appear to be money," Vaughn said.

Police cited the following with a single count of misdemeanor gambling: Scott Schetler, 43, of Springfield, Andrew Davis, 30, of Hendersonville, Tammy Allen, 36, of Springfield, Philip Hovey, 43, of Portland, Brad Mortensen, 43, of Nashville, Stephanie Harper, 38, of Madison,  Scott Bennett, 38, of Madison, Spring Gibbs, 41, of Madison, Todd Thomas, 43, of Springfield, Kyle Wikber, 39, of Cottontown, Kenneth Schindler, 37, of Hendersonville, Justin McCain, 26, of Joelton, Steven Lee, 42, of White House.

Officers arrested Green on a felony charge of aggravated gambling promotion and a misdemeanor charge of gambling.

Green posted bond and will appear in court on June 26.
