In Defiance, police have now released the names of those connected to the alleged “illegal casinos” that were raided last Thursday.
According to the Crescent News, Marvin Dabish, Robert Dabish and Nadia Dabish, all of Oregon, are the alleged owners and operators of the Talk-N-Win Internet cafe in Northtowne Mall. Jamish Robison, was the manager.
Defiance Police, along with the Multi-Area Narcotics Unit, the Defiance County Sheriff’s Office and the Black Swamp Electronic Crimes Task Force executed three search warrants last week in connection with an 18-month undercover investigation of “illegal casinos” allegedly operated by the Dabishs.
Police seized illegal gambling equipment, including 101 gaming terminals, along with cash; narcotics; and stolen firearms during the raids at Talk-N-Win (formerly known as The Players Club) and 28–1/2 College Place.
No charges have been filed.
Talk-N-Win, according to the newspaper, was one of six businesses raided in our area last week for alleged illegal gambling.
Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine’s office reports warrants were also served at Talk-N-Win Internet cafes in Toledo, Oregon, Fremont and Findlay, plus at the Surf’s Up cafe in Oregon. All in all, more than $72,000 in cash was confiscated.
