Cuyahoga County prosecutors announced on Wednesday the indictment of 10 defendants and seven companies involved in illegal internet sweepstakes cafes in Northeast Ohio.

The arrests are the culmination of an eight-month undercover joint investigation, conducted by prosecutors, the FBI and local police. Investigators say the scheme was complex. Vendors from a company by the name of VS2 based in New Jersey would find local bars and internet cafes to place these illegal gaming systems, then rake in millions of unregulated cash.

The defendants include George Georgekopoulos, 37, of Hinckley, Pete Georgekopoulos, 39, of Stow, Christos Karasarides, Jr., 46, of Canton, Christopher Maggiore, 46, of Canton, James Watson, 61, of Canton, Martin Srcyk, 61, of North Royalton and Neil Sarcyk, 25, of Parma Heights.
