Grand Junction Internet sweepstakes cafes could be forced to close if local law enforcement determines they actually operate as houses of gambling.

Hautzinger declined to comment about any investigation, but a closer look at the businesses by law enforcement seems likely after Colorado Attorney General John Suthers published a formal opinion earlier this month that found Internet sweepstakes cafés may be illegal gambling houses depending on the way they operate.
