Three internet cafes in Fremont were raided for illegal gambling Saturday night, and residents are shocked at what they saw.

Police say the "Lot$-of-Fun" (1221 Oak Harbor Rd), "Lucky Dog" (1800 West State St) and "Player's Club" (121 S. Fifth St) internet cafes are the subject of a five-week investigation into alleged illegal gambling.

Fake customers were sent in and illegally given cash for winning certain games. It is illegal in Ohio for internet cafes to hand out cash.

The Fremont Police Department and the Ohio State Patrol seized computers from all three locations.

"It's surprising! I didn't even know what was going on, which is even more surprising, and hearing about this, it's pretty crazy, especially for Fremont," said local resident Andrew Chovanec.

At the Player's Club, a sign on the door refers customers to other cafe locations and blames Fremont's mayor and Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine for the closure.
