Milton Man Arrested in Guelph Illegal Gaming Bust

The Guelph Police have arrested a man from Milton as part of an investigation into illegal gaming.

In January, the Guelph Police got a tip from the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Commission (OLG) about a convenience store in the west end of Guelph that was supposedly selling illegal lottery tickets. The store was linked to a website that offered games similar to real OLG lottery games.

After looking into it, the police found out that the store wasn't selling anything, but they had a secret room where people could play lottery games on tablets. They also found another place like this in downtown Kitchener.

On Wednesday, April 3rd, the police searched both places. They found gaming machines, tablets, lottery receipts, and other stuff connected to illegal activities.

A 26-year-old man from Milton was arrested at the Guelph store. He's been charged with breaking the law by running a gambling place and allowing people to place bets. He'll have to go to court on Friday, May 17th.

Another man, a 20-year-old from Waterloo, was also arrested in Kitchener for the same reasons. But after the police figured out that he had only worked at the store for less than two days and thought it was a normal store, he was let go without any charges.
