GBI raids Bulloch convenience stores


                On Thursday, the GBI's Commercial Gambling Unit, along with the Bulloch County Sheriff's Office Crime Suppression Team, and in cooperation with the Georgia Lottery Corporation and the Georgia Department of Revenue executed four search warrants in Bulloch County for violations of Georgia's commercial gambling laws.
        Search warrants were served at four business locations. While searching the locations, agents collected evidence related to crimes of commercial gambling and seized monetary assets gained from the illegal use of gaming machines.
        All of the locations are currently licensed to operate Coin Operated Amusement Machines. However, during the course of the investigation, agents discovered customers were receiving cash payouts for winning credits. In Georgia, credits may only be redeemed for lottery tickets and/or store merchandise.
        Search warrants were executed at the following business locations:
• Jai Ma Ambe, Inc. d/b/a Amoco BP Food Store, 218 North Main Street, Statesboro
• S&D Grandsons, Inc. d/b/a Quick Shop, 301 North Main Street, Statesboro
• Maruti Food & Gas, LLC, 17899 US Hwy. 301 North, Statesboro
• Vraj Gopi Inc., d/b/a Vraj Food Mart #1, 21196 Hwy. 80 East, Statesboro

                Multiple arrests are pending.
        In total, more than 25 officers launched the raids.
