THOMAS COUNTY, GA (WALB) -

GBI agents raided Paradise Business Center and seized computer games.

Vincent Wright says the cafe' advertised as a faxing, internet, and copying service center but he only recalls hearing from a friend about the games available inside.

"She just said that she won some money inside, she liked the games, they had different types of games most like slot machines, lucky seven," Vincent Wright.

Back in 2011 the business was closed due to violating gambling regulations, yesterday's raid may have opened up a whole new investigation.

Investigators say customers were receiving cash pay outs for winning credits after playing computer games, which is a violation of Georgia law and exactly the same reason that the business was shut down a few years ago.

Money was confiscated from the business that is believed to be associated with the violations, Emmanuel Athitakis was arrested, and an arrest warrant has been issued for Manso Emmanual Athitakis.
