DOTHAN(AP) — The developer of the Country Crossing electronic bingo development in Dothan says he won’t reopen immediately.

Developer Ronnie Gilley had contacted employees about reopening Country Crossing on Thursday. But he announced Wednesday he’s postponing it. Gilley said the owners of the electronic bingo machines at Country Crossing will not give their support because the governor’s gambling task force has threatened a raid.

Country Crossing’s casino, restaurants and inn have been closed since late January to prevent a raid by the task force.
