Bye, bye to the last known illegal Internet gambling hall in Cuyahoga County.

A task force raided the Cyber Depot on Shaw Avenue in Cleveland Friday afternoon.

As of yet, no charges have been filed against the owners or operators.  However, they may face gambling and money laundering charges in the future.

Cuyahoga County Prosecutor Timothy J. McGinty said, "The days of gambling with the law have come to an end. Anyone who wishes to open an illegal gambling casino, know that we are right behind you ready to close and lock the doors. These parlors have not and will not ever be accepted in Cuyahoga County."
