Authorities in Montgomery County say they raided an illegal game room which was masquerading as an Internet Cafe.

Precinct five deputy constables carried out a search warrant at the business on FM 1774 last night.

They found 25 illegal gaming machines inside and an ATM. One person was arrested. The cafe's owners could be charged with illegal gambling and paying out cash prizes. Authorities seized all of the games.

The owner said the business had been in operation for two years.
