Rome business owners arrested in gambling sting

Special to SEGAZINE

Authorities in northwest Georgia say the ninth man wanted in an illegal gambling sting has surrendered to police.

Officials say Naveed Bhamani is charged with commercial gambling, gambling, possession and keeping of a gambling device. It is unclear if he has an attorney.

Eight others were arrested early Tuesday in connection with a bust last week and have also been charged with violating the state’s Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations regulations.

The Rome News Tribune reports (http://bit.ly/10zG8Cj ) the business owners ran gambling operations in back rooms and used cables to connect machines to a device monitored by the store clerk, who would print out vouchers with cash redemption value.

Bond was set for the nine men at $25,000 each.
