SPRING HILL, FL – After a commercial robbery at “Fish Games Skill Games,” took place on November 7, 2021, Hernando County detectives immediately launched an investigation which confirmed activities occurring within the establishment were illegal. As maintaining a gaming establishment is a violation of Florida State Statute 849.01, authorities executed a search warrant at 3484 Commercial Way in Spring Hill.

Upon execution of the search warrant, detectives observed two employees and eight patrons inside the establishment.

The second employee, a security guard, was not charged with any crime. Detectives also seized over $26,000 in cash used for illegal gambling and various gambling equipment from the business.

Two patrons Michelle Botsch, 28, and Robert Cannariato, 39, were also issued Misdemeanor Citations. The remaining six patrons were released with no charges. All were warned regarding the activity being illegal and advised they would likely be charged if located in an illegal gambling establishment in the future. The investigation continues.
