Thursday September 26,2013 : GAMBLING IN FLORIDA INTERNET CASINOS SHUT DOWN
 
New Florida law applied in Brookesville
 
Anti-internet cafe gambling laws urgently passed by the Florida state legislature following a major charity scam involving the genre earlier this year have been applied to shut down three internet cafe operations in Brookesville, Hernando County this week.
 
Local Sheriff Al Nienhuis directed his detectives to close the venues, which he said investigations had shown were operating illegally in terms of the new laws.
 
No details of arrests or equipment confiscations were available when we went to press Thursday.
