Oklahoma law officials are seeking to confiscate $7.8 million that was seized from an Anadarko couple that was charged with conducting an illegal gambling operation.

The couple, Chase and Kristin Burns, were among 57 people arrested in March on felony charges related to a Florida-based charity that purported to help homeless veterans by operating Internet sweepstakes cafes.

The couple faces racketeering and other charges.
