MIDDLETOWN, Del. -- Police said Tuesday they raided a home where they said much more than strip poker was being played.

Police said a man turned a poker game with neighborhood residents into his business, with thousands of dollars on the table, high-priced buy-ins, credit card machines and occasionally, nudity.

Police said 37-year-old William Shane Anderson, his wife Laurie, 37, and 20-year-old Matthew Balotin, were released on bail Monday after being charged with first-degree advancing gambling, providing a premise for gambling, possession of gambling devices, three counts of endangering the welfare of a child, and conspiracy.

Police said they were also questioning the Andersons' parenting skills, as they said the gambling was going on as the children were in the house, and even said their mother, a stripper, helped run the business.
