Internet Cafe Online Gambling Bust In North Syracuse

2 arrested, "numerous" computers seized in police raid

Police in North Syracuse, New York busted a cybercafe for offering illegal online gambling Thursday, arresting two men and seizing numerous computers and other evidence.

Those arrested were 24-year-old Joshua Nelson, of Dayton, Ohio and 30-year-old Zackary McMahon, of Myrtle Beach.

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 legislation 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.
