6 People Arrested In Tifton Following Indictments For Illegal Gambling

Tifton, GA (September 20, 2023) - On Wednesday, September 20, 2023, the GBI's Commercial Gambling Unit, along with the GBI's Southwestern Regional Drug Enforcement Office, the Tifton Police Department and the Tift County Sheriff's Office served arrest warrants for six of seven people indicted on multiple gambling related charges.   A Tift County Grand Jury returned true bill indictments on Monday, September 11, 2023, for violations of Georgia's gambling laws and related offenses.  

Based on the indictments, arrests warrants were secured for the following: 

  1. Dron Modi, 29, of Tifton 

  1. Prajakta Modi, 51, of Tifton 

  1. Tarunkumar Modi, 52, of Tifton 

  1. Mukeshkumar Patel, 55, of Tifton 

  1. Sunny Patel, 22, of Tifton 

  1. Jagatpal Singh, 48, of Tifton 

  1. Charles Monroe, Jr., 38, of Tifton 

During the course of a lengthy investigation, agents discovered businesses operating Coin Operated Amusement Machines (COAMS) where customers were receiving cash payouts for winning credits.  In Georgia, COAMS must be properly licensed by the Georgia Lottery and credits may only be redeemed for non-cash prizes such as lottery tickets and/or store merchandise.  

Six are being held at the Tift County Jail.  Charles Monroe, Jr. is not in custody, but there is an active warrant for his arrest.
