From CBS13:

By sheer coincidence, CBS13 launched our own undercover investigation at Megabytes on Wednesday, before West Sacramento police found drugs, alcohol and cash inside the cafe.

Investigators say it’s pretty clear people didn’t come to the cafe to check Facebook. While a woman at the front desk told us a day before that patrons were playing “sweepstakes” games, cops invited us in on Thursday after the raid to look at rows of computers with slot machine games and more.

The owner of the European market next door said Megabytes was a constant source of danger, saying she heard fights every day.

The latest raids come at a time when Internet cafes throughout the US have come under intense scrutiny.  Ohio and Florida authorities have conducted raids of suspect establishments in recent weeks.
