[UPDATED] Thomasville, Georgia - October 20, 2011

Investigators served a warrant to Paradise Internet Cafe back on October 6th. They told us an undercover operation revealed illegal gambling was taking place. On Thursday, our cameras drove through the plaza where the cafe is located to see if the place was opened for business.

The light was on and customers were walking in, but they declined to talk to us. There is no word from police as to why the doors are back open, but staff inside tell us it's business as usual.

Paradise Internet Cafe did provide WCTV with release regarding the reopening. Find that document above.

We will update this story as soon as more information becomes available.
