80 computers seized
Police in Ohio have seized more than 80 computers and other electronic equipment from an internet cafe that authorities claim was being operated as a gambling house, Associated Press reports.
The Chillicothe Police Department seized the equipment Friday afternoon in the execution of a local search warrant, a spokesman revealed, adding that two as yet unnamed people have been charged with operating a gambling house, a first degree misdemeanor in the state.
The charges and search stemmed from an undercover investigation, he added, noting that the investigation is ongoing, and that additional charges may be pending once the owner of the premises is identified.
