Over the past several months, an undercover investigation with the Macon County Sheriff's Office (MCSO) revealed that at least nine businesses in Macon County were illegally operating sweepstakes gaming machines.
"Today was only the execution of multiple search warrants," Macon County Sheriff Robert Holland said on Monday. "Nine businesses total since Saturday night were investigated. This follows an undercover investigation that has gone on for several months. Every business paid out cash during this investigation."
