UPDATED for print edition — It was back to business as usual Saturday morning — minus a truckload of pay-for-play video games — at a half dozen convenience stores in Peachtree City and Tyrone following a gambling raid Friday night.

Police officers from several Fayette County law enforcement agencies and agents from the Ga. Dept. of Revenue (DOR) began Operation Game Over in the late afternoon hours May 20, conducting raids on six convenience stores in Peachtree City and Tyrone after a two-month undercover operation determined that illegal gambling using gaming machines was taking place in those businesses.

Peachtree City Police spokesperson Rosanna Dove said officers closed and taped-off the businesses in Peachtree City that include the Pit Stop at Petrol Point and Ga. Highway 54, Wisdom Shell on Ga. Highway 74, the Braelinn Village Store at South Peachtree Parkway and Robinson Road, the Glenloch Village store at Hwy. 54 and Robinson Road and the BP store on Hwy. 54 just east of Hwy. 74. Officers also closed the Tyrone Village BP store at Tyrone Road and Hwy. 74, Dove added.

Dove said Operation Game Over took shape after the department began receiving complaints in February about several area businesses with illegal gaming machines. Undercover agents surveyed 14 businesses, seven of which were subsequently determined to have some form of illegal gaming activity occurring.

Dove said a total of 30 warrants were issued in Operation Game Over. The names of those arrested that have been released thus far include:

• At Pit Stop – Darshak Patel, 42, of Newnan, for commercial gambling and keeping a gambling place; Pankaj Patel, 40, of Newnan, for commercial gambling and keeping a gambling place; Kailash Patel, 42, of Newnan, for commercial gambling and keeping a gambling place.

Addressing the raid at the Petrol Point Pit Stop, Mike Hyde of the Hyde Group that owns Pit Stop locations on Peachtree City’s south side and in Fairburn said Monday that the Petrol Point location was leased to another company in September and is not operated by his company even though the Pit Stop sign is still in place. The Hyde Group does not and never has installed games in its stores, Hyde said.

• At Wisdom Shell – Stella Sheffield, 42, of Newnan, for commercial gambling and keeping a gambling place; Tracy Hamer, 43, of Peachtree City, for commercial gambling and keeping a gambling place.

• At Braelinn Village Store – Sheralli Panjwani, 49, of Fayetteville, for commercial gambling.

• At Glenloch Village Store – Giovanna Vargas, 42, of Peachtree City, for commercial gambling and keeping a gambling place; Jalal Dayani, 49, Fayetteville, for commercial gambling and keeping a gambling place; Sena Bogale Koji, 22, of Jonesboro, for commercial gambling, keeping a gambling place and giving false identity information to officers.

• At the BP at 2597 Hwy. 54 - Marcel Waters, 24, of Habersham Drive, Jonesboro, for commercial gambling and keeping a gambling place; Jordan Honeycutt, 19, of Peachtree City, for commercial gambling and keeping a gambling place.

Dove said DOR agents were expected to remove 30-40 machines from the various locations.

Agencies participating in Operation Game Over include Peachtree City Police, Tyrone Police, Fayetteville Police, Ga. Dept. of Revenue and the Griffin Judicial Circuit District Attorney.

LOL

I used to work at two of these places. Never knew of Pit stop having any machines but at the BP he knew what was going on. He instructed all the clerks to pay out cash with the tickets that were printed out on the gambling machines. Didn't see his name but saw his mug in mugshotlist and am kinda laughing right now considering after all the overtime pay I never received and the fact that the clerks were arrested as well for both charges (misdemeanor and felonies). Glad I ditched that bullet. But seriously. Most of these people are not US citizens and are making money off something recreational.I understand it's their money to gamble with but when there's a massive profit to be made by just one person not paying taxes how is that right? How is it right that these young people in some cases were arrested just for going to work? Anyway, glad it happened. Gambling is illegal. Go somewhere else. Shady business is shady business.

Background Check for Alcohol Licences

Now if I understand this, when a licence is applied for to sell alcohol, a criminal records check for the last 5 years is run on the licence holder.

So, the next time the store renews, does a new check get done and would a conviction prevent them from selling alcohol?

Operation Game Over... Y Knot?

I've heard the Y Knot was also targeted but perhaps they had heard in advance about the "raid" from a little bird.

Can anyone shed a little light?

I know Y-Knot does Keno with cash payouts, but their Keno machines are part of the GA Lottery Commission network and are considered another game in the "legal lottery" of GA. If they are doing anything outside of that, I have no idea. I'm only in there 2-3 times a year.

Game Over.

I have lived out of state for awhile. Will move back soon. I have been reading up on the local stuff for a few weeks.
The Fayette County politics has always been a bit 'iffy'. But, where did all of these 'right-wing' 'nut-job' FOX News thumping folks come from? Did not used to be this radical.
I agree with some of the other posters. Someone at the county or maybe the city needed a 'boost' for something. Not sure what. Is there an election coming up?
From what I understand, these machines have been around for a while. Looking forward to reading more about this "bust".

Glad to see that most are bothered by this.
Yes it is illegal but should not be(what we want to do with OUR money should not be any of the governments concern). It is an easy bust with a large booty for the government. So I understand why they do these raids often.
When will it get to the point when we as citizens can do what we want, when we want, with whom we want.
I guess thats why they become public officials, so that they have this ability and keep us from it.

here is a great rule to live by: If you dont like it, dont do it and no you cannot complain about it.

Oops, guess I better quit my Bunco group. Can just see all us

oldie goldies sitting there, suddenly the door is broken down and twenty burly guys in swat team gear burst in. At least two players have heart attacks, one with a weak bladder has an accident, one says "I know Commission Hearn, I go to his church" and several start crying and praying. Our winnings (five dollars, all in quarters) are confiscated for "evidence", we are taken out and put in the paddy wagon and hauled off to jail, and our names are all listed in the paper. The next day the power brokers in Fayette County contact three of us and offer to put our names up for public office. Hmm, maybe not so bad after all.

Raid..

I have someone directly involved in this mess. The machines have been there for years. In fact the Tyrone Police enjoyed the free coffee given to them at the BP station ( Hwy 74 & Tyrone Rd ). The machines didn't suddenly show up one day, the owners were not hiding them.

Simple fact, yes, the way they handles the payouts may have violated Ga law, but they sure like to put on a big show when doing these raids. I have never seen or heard of a video gambling machine running for the store or heard of one of these machines going on a crime spree.. Its sensationalism, pure and simple. A big show of force to make the bible thumbers and game losers happy..

DOR is looking for money, bottom like. Guess Gov Deal has told all his depts to find ways to generate more revenue. So hit these businesses that pay their taxes and alert the media that the state of Ga has a new leader and they aren't going to turned a blind eye to any so of gambling. While the drug activity continues to explode in this county, more and more illegals find Fayette county to be a save haven to drive illegally, get free education for their kids , lets ignore those issues and stop the video gambling games and payouts. Let's serve no knock search warrants and tear homes apart oookng for evidence. Because we know video gambling is going to destory the county ( big smurk )..PTC PD has the lead on this investigation,given they have little to do, so let them waste more time stopping this video crack gambling addition, jeeze, this is one time I wonder why the show of force and lifes runied for nothing more than a petty crime.

Can you imagine simply doing you job at one of these stores and next thing you now, you're in cuffs for what, gambling? What, all I do is run the cash rgister, sorry ma'am or sir, your going to jail , because someone complained and we have to stop this video crack addition. Give me a break..

Tyrone has a Long History of Gambling

For those of us that have been around here for a while know that Tyrone has been a Gambling den for years. The spot was the back room behind Rutledge's Auto parts
(next to the Market), the game was poker and the players were the Chief of Police, the Mayor and a long list of movers and shakers in this county. This went on for 15-20 years every Saturday afternoon and it was not penny anti, we're talkin $200/300 pots. So it has been in there history for years.

Gene61 (I hope not UGA)....

........(so many errors)

A big deal is made of this type of arrests (I suppose they arrested them), because whatever money or vehicles they impound will be split among all the jurisdictions. (same with dope). That may have come about by much of the "bounty" disappearing when each jurisdiction did their own thing!

I must tell you though that illegal activity should not be ignored! I don't know why it was so long. Free coffee would not be sufficient to a arrange that, if true.
We do need to pay police more than we do so they can buy their own coffee and lunch!

Would it do any good to have the proper authority check into that coffee thing?

If the cash register employees aren't smart enough to know the gambling is illegal, especially if they do the payoffs, then you need smarter people!

Gambling may not destroy the County, as you insinuate, but the lottery may!

Anyway, let us change the law instead of tempting people to be unlawful.
I know it is like a "small sin" if a religious person, but they usually add up. Yes, home gambling would be illegal (small though).

Let me clearify...the machines didn't appear overnight. In one such the macines have been in the same location now for 3-4 years, where local law enforcement have clearly seen them operating. they have in fact turned a blind eye to it.. like I said, yes we have the law clearly defining what is legal and not, but why wait till now to suddenly enforce it?

Point is, while they or anyone was aking that free cup of coffeee from that location whee said mcines have been in the same part of the store for 3-4 yrs, what changed? A complaint, a loser suddenly feeling he or she was chated by one the games? This smack of selective enforcment of the law . 3-4 years ago, it was okay to look past it, but not 3 months ago when the investigations started? It simply stinks.

How hard would it have been to simply end cease and decease letters, and start the process that didn't involve the BIG SHOw that the county put on?

As for the employees, if the act of gaming had been all but condoned for any peroid of time, in some cases years, wouldn't one assume that the stores were operating within the law? No store had been warned, machines weren't taken , in fact the machines were in may locations. No owner was hiding them. I agree, the laws should be chaged, but the fact is this is selective enforcment of the law only after somone complained, most likely some loser or newbie to the area got their feathers ruffled. Or could it be the counties involved are looking for more ways to take assets for action. to fill their own pockets?

we can agree to disagree, but this whole mess smells...

Gaming machines

Most of the machines of this variety are not illegal to have in your store, it's when the management starts giving "cash payouts" that it runs afoul of the law.

I have no idea about all of these businesses busted, but there's a strong possibility that not all of them were giving cash payouts for years and only started doing it more recently. Once one place did it, some others followed along,etc. Again, just an opinion here, but I highly doubt they were all breaking the law for a few years and not caught until now.

yeah, the machines have been there for a long time

in the BP on 74 in Tyrone and frankly I was suprised. I've never seen anyone at them. But I don't go in there that much since BP screwed the Coast so bad.

The girls that work there have, and always will be nice..I've known them for years. One is the daughter of a very very much loved chief of police that died.

The person responsible for the machines in there is the guy that has the franchise for that location... he is also the one that had the BIG signs up for Smith and Maxwell. So big in fact and large flatbed truck had to deliver them.

He also owns more stations..maybe some others in this raid...I don't know.

The coast deal and the big signs have caused me to do business elsewhere. Maybe the guy with the franchise is who needs to be looked at.

OMG my friend lied to me!!!

I have a friend who is addicted to gambling. We do not speak much since I found how deep it runs for her. She used to abandon her kids at the last place they lived with other people so she could gamble. Her kids told me this! I got tired of being dumped with them actually. She told me one day that her and her friends found a place to gamble. I was like here.....she changed her story and said they drove to the Alabama state line and found some gas stations where you could gamble. Now I know the whole time she lied and she was probably out gambling every time it took her three hours to go pick up some hotdogs at the grocery store. I am amazed but glad that the police busted them. Maybe now her kids can have a mom and some lunch money too!

PTC_0*, Perhaps Mayor Haddix

PTC_0*, Perhaps Mayor Haddix can talk the “Bowling Alley” investors into changing the plan to include a video gambling wing, to better serve the needs of the community.

If the investors don’t install all those expensive automatic pin setting machines for the alleys they can buy video gambling machines for the new wing instead.

To set the pins for the bowlers, they can hire child laborers to manually set them, like our founding fathers did.

Now dolphn528’s friend will no longer have to lie to her friends. She can bring her children with her when she gambles, hire them out to set pins for the bowlers, and with the money they earn she can pour it back into the video gambling machines.

That BP sure wasn't hiding anything as there were many machines

lining the walls with seats along the windows so you could sit and play in comfort. At least that is what it looked like to me--wondered about it the first time I went in to do my legalized state sanctioned gambling---getting my lottery tickets and putting someone's kid through college. Can't remember ever seeing anyone sitting down playing any of the machines but I am sure it happened. They had been there for months and months as far as i can remember. I can tell you one thing, if I don't start winning anything off the lottery soon i will start badgering all my state officials to get rid of this sinful practice, especially on Sunday's. I just might get too emotional if I continue to lose and take my legally carried "piece" and start doing some damage. I can always blame it on diminished capacity if caught--works for judges-so will be good enough for me, you think?

It must not be against the law in PTC!

Or, these places are owned by the right people!

I know they compete with the state gambling establishments (Lotto, etc.), but isn't this just more of the old southern fear of tempting GOD? You know liquor, gambling, sex, cursing, not attending church, smoking, lipstick, breasts showing or bulging, women in pants (tight), street prostitution (must be inside), massages, vibrating, bars, illegal whiskey (as opposed to legal, divorces (except church members), dirty words (just some), judges-lawyers, court officials, who aren't on the take (except for sex), golden calves (Cadillacs, Mercedes', Million dollar houses, fur coats, diamonds, etc.), short hair for women, perfume (except for homos), and of course, Hypocrites!

It takes a state to enforce the law! Good publicity. (there is a whole barn of these machines somewhere in GA, Sonny found it once, but I think it is still there---they fall out the back door.

sunset this evening. We have no more illegal gambling, no bowling alley (yet), no more walking signs, no more dogs and cats off leashes, no more hoarding beer on Sat., and no more false alarms. AND, we have the purtiest darn sunsets over any lake in Ga. down at the Battery boat docks. So, I think we are pretty well set to go, as there just ain't nothin' fun left to stick around for.

I figure we got about 7 hours left walk the dogs. Haven't figured out who's gonna walk them tomorrow yet though.

They obviously have no home or don't want to go back to it.

They are hungry and try to force their way in. Just like a cat. They also stink.

Just goes to show you if we were supposed to know the details about such things we would know them! Hey, we are here. Sometime we or the sun will destroy us. What else do we need to know to keep from being mean?

fortune telling

here's one for you. 350 Dividend Dr. Rent's cheap, plenty o' parkin', and all you have to do is inhale deeply to get all the out-o-body experiences you could ever dream of.

MLC--Dividend

Is that address the old Photocircuits poison pit or the Moving Church Car, men? (They may be on Huddleston).

Do you suppose either place is dangerous to our health and is being ignored due to the cost to clean it up. Our City allowed it, but I'll bet they want the government to clean it up (you know like socialism).

PTC becomes Shorter, AL

The downhill slide continues. With Starship going into the old Blockbuster at Braelinn Village and a Title MAX on 54 at the county line can a Cheetah club be far behind?

I don't understand........

These local conservatives and TEAS who want no rules or regulations concerning business yet they fight Cheetahs, Starships, Houses of ill Repute, Title Loans, Pawn Shops, bars (without food), places that have a lot of traffic, places that don't serve wings and beer, car lots--except if owned by a "church," and of all things a place owned by a renowned Democrat!
I don't think one of the city founders who is a democrat (old timey kind)
can actually own anything here except maybe some secretive land.

Yet, crooked banks, stock sellers, realtors, and developers are more than welcomed! No factory workers from Jonesboro though!

Cheetah Club - PTC

I heard it has to go in on Dividend someplace because it has to be in an industrial area. A city code requirement. Is this true? They should have ample parking there and security should be good too.

I think this is all part of the planned community concept.
