(A) If any of the implements, devices, apparatus, tickets, receipts, books, balls, coupons, lists, code numbers, or other things commonly or customarily used in bolita, Cuba bolita, Cuba, New York bond, parlay, or any form of lottery are found in the possession of any person in the city, it shall be prima facie evidence that the person is engaging in, participating in, or connected with a lottery, scheme, or device or has recently engaged in, participated in, or has been connected with a lottery, scheme, or device, and that person shall be guilty of possession of devices and things used in a lottery, as prohibited by this chapter. Possession raises the presumption that the lottery is yet to be played or has recently been played, but this presumption may be overcome by proof.
