An investigation into suspected illegal gambling touched down in Enfield Tuesday when a state police task force executed a search warrant at Mousepad Business Center & Tech Solutions.

According to a press release from Connecticut State Police, a "Sweepstakes" contest offered at the Internet cafe appears to be in violation of Connecticut General Statutes concerning professional gambling and possession of gambling devices.

Mousepad offers a “Sweepstakes” contest in which the purchase of a telephone calling card or Internet time by a customer entitles the customer entry into the “Sweepstakes,” police said.

At 11 a.m. on Feb. 11, the Connecticut State Police Organized Crime Investigative Task Force executed a search and seizure warrant at Mousepad, which is located at 483 Enfield St. 

Further evidence was reportedly seized during the execution of the search warrant. And arrests are anticipated, police said.

According to the press release, this extensive state police criminal investigation is continuing with the assistance of several law enforcement agencies, including the Office of the Connecticut Chief State’s Attorney, State of Connecticut Department of Special Revenue-Gaming Division, Bloomfield Police Department and Enfield Police Department.
