There's nothing at all conspicuous about running a VHS RENTAL STORE in 2019. Seems like a business with a lot of growth opportunity.
The police in Gwinnett County, Georgia have had their eye on a VHS rental store in town since January. They've noticed the store had a LOT of customers going in and out, but none of them ever seemed to leave carrying any VHS tapes.
And when they had an undercover cop go inside last week, he found the newest movie in stock was from 2007.
He also figured out what was REALLY going on: The VHS store was actually a front for an illegal sports gambling ring.
So they finally raided the place earlier this week and arrested the owner, a guy named Boonlert Boonsawang who was taking sports bets out of the store.
