A copy store in Sacramento, California was raided by police on Thursday for allegedly taking part in running an illegal online gambling operation.

The raid by police resulted in the discovery of 29 computers inside of the store, which is named Copy Planet. Interestingly, no copy machines were found inside of the shop.

Police claim that they were tipped off by neighboring businesses that were reporting an excess of visitors during odd hours. Once inside the shop, players bought cards that were loaded onto gaming cards. Punters could then use the cards to gamble on the computers. Investigators claim that the shop was bringing in between $600 and $1,500 per day.
