Va. Police Raid Internet Gaming Cafes

September 23, 2010

Virginia Beach police are targeting Internet gaming cafes suspected of conducting illegal gambling.

"The Virginian-Pilot" reports that police raided 11 gaming centers Wednesday and confiscated at least 400 computers. No arrests were made.

Commonwealth's Attorney Harvey Bryant says the evidence will be reviewed by experts to help determine whether criminal charges will be filed. No charges are planned against any customers.

Bryant says he believes the gaming centers are illegal because the games require no skills and players can win rewards.

The owner of four gaming centers that were raided says his businesses have done everything they can to comply with the law. Daniel Storie says he is consulting with his attorneys.
