ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - Almost a year after Florida lawmakers outlawed Internet cafes following the arrests of dozens of suspects on gambling charges, Florida authorities have made a second-round of arrests and executed search warrants in an effort to break up two Internet cafe operations that they say were promoting gambling.
A police task force headed by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement served search warrants Thursday in five Florida counties, targeting operations run by Ivan Vega and Peter Miller. Vega was arrested on a warrant from an earlier investigation on charges of keeping a gambling house, lottery and other charges.
Vega was being held without bond at the Seminole County Jail and couldn't be reached for comment.
Miller didn't return a phone call or email.
