BAKERSFIELD - Police raided an Internet cafe on the 700 block of Oak Street, south of Chester Lane Thursday afternoon.
About 45 computers, several servers and money were seized from Hot Spot Cyber Cafe, according to Sgt. Joe Grubbs with the Bakersfield Police Department.
No one was arrested.
The Police Department received tips from neighboring businesses Tuesday that Hot Spot had restarted hosting "sweepstakes" gambling.
Undercover detectives entered the business and confirmed that sweepstakes were taking place.
Detectives will now send the case to the District Attorney.
"The legitimate--if you will--businesses are the ones being negatively impacted," said Sgt. Grubbs.
