The police investigation was triggered by reports and complaints from surrounding businesses and customers of the internet sweepstakes operation, and the police action was taken in terms of relatively new legalization signed into the state law books last year.
Senior Investigator Peter Burns told local media that the two arrested men have been charged with operating an unlawful electronic sweepstakes enterprise and were released until their next court date.
