Deputies bust sweepstakes cafe in Greenville

Posted: Updated:
GREENVILLE, N.C. -

The Pitt County Sheriff's Office seized more than a dozen machines from a sweepstakes cafe in Greenville Thursday afternoon.

The Sheriff tells 9 On Your Side he got several complaints about the Platinum Sweepstakes Cafe on Memorial Drive. Callers claimed the store had more than a dozen non pre-reveal machines.

Investigators found 14 stand up machines, similar to the ones seized in January. The Sheriff's office says these machines are a clear violation of the law.

The owner of the machines who now faces charges told deputies he had a previous location in Nash county and moved his machines to Greenville when he was busted.
