Schuette orders Internet gambling cafés to close

LANSING (AP) -- Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette says his office has ordered the closing of three Internet gambling cafés.

Schuette said Monday that his staff sent "cease and desist" letters telling operators they risk legal action unless they stop violating Michigan's gambling laws within two weeks.

He says state police investigated Cyber Café in Holt, Lansing Business Center and Flint Business Center.

Schuette says the businesses sell Internet access and the chance to play computer-based casino-type games.

A woman who answered the phone Monday at the Flint Business Center declined to give her name for comment. A woman who answered the phone at a number listed for the Lansing Business Center said it was a home phone and not connected to a business. A phone listed for Cyber Café wasn't working Monday evening.
