Ohio Attorney General Continues Attack on Internet Cafes

Ohio’s top cop Wednesday stepped up his drive to shut down many of the state’s internet cafes and sweepstakes stores on the grounds that they offer illegal gambling. 

Attorney General Mike DeWine and the Cuyahoga County Prosecutor announced that six cafes in the Cleveland area were searched and some of their bank accounts were seized. The A.G. also offered help from his office to OTHER counties that want to go after the estimated 794 storefront operations across Ohio. Statehouse correspondent Bill Cohen reports.
