FLORIDA POLICE SHUT DOWN THREE INTERNET CAFES
15th July, 2011 at 03:44:40
200 computers seized
In Florida, Pinellas sheriff's deputies armed with warrants shut down three Internet sweepstakes cafes Thursday, confiscating cash and close to 200 computers, according to reports in the Tampa Bay News.
The investigations by the narcotics division began after neighbours complained that online gambling was ongoing at Reel Fun, Palm Harbor Internet Cafe, and Southern Play Arcade in Largo, officials said.
Detectives arrived at the cafes before noon Thursday, gathering a total of 198 computers and about $20,000 in cash. They made no arrests, but said they were still investigating. Last year, the sheriff's office sent letters to the businesses advising them to shut down in 30 days or face investigations.
