Sweepstakes Business Avoids Raid by Vice Detectives But Not Armed Robber
SPRING HILL – While Detectives with the Hernando County Sheriff’s Vice and Narcotics Unit continue to shut down illegal gambling establishments around the county, one business, that so far has avoided being raided, wasn’t able to dodge an early morning armed robbery.
That’s what officials say happened around 4:00 a.m. this morning, when an employee at the Lucky Seven Sweepstakes establishment reported being robbed at gunpoint by a black male, dressed in all black clothing, and wearing a hoodie.
Officials say the suspect fled the scene by unknown means and the victim was not injured.
Officials would not confirm if the incident was captured on video surveillance, but there are cameras positioned around the business.
There have been at least six illegal gambling establishments raided over the last few months, resulting in several arrests.
The amount of cash taken during the robbery has not been disclosed.
Officials would not confirm or deny if Lucky Seven is on their list to be shut down or how they have avoided being targeted by Vice and Narcotics Detectives so far.
Lucky Seven is located at 5165 Commercial Way and remains open for business.
