A Defiance Grand Jury has indicted three people who allegedly operated an “illegal gambling house” at the Northtowne Mall in Defiance, and in four other communities.
38 year old Marvin Dabish, 39 year old Robert Dabish, and 59 year old Nadia Dabish, all of Oregon, are now facing more than 40 charges, including engaging in a pattern of corrupt activity; violation of casino gaming laws; possessing criminal tools; gambling; and operating a gambling house. Many of those charges are serious felonies. The Dabishes own the Talk-N-Win Internet Cafe at Northtowne Mall which was searched by authorities and then shut down last December. They also own Talk-N-Win cafes in Findlay, Fremont, Oregon and Toledo. The Dabishes are scheduled to be arraigned on March 18 in Defiance County Common Pleas Court.
