PHOENIX — Tucked inside a tiny strip mall near 15th Avenue and Indian School Road, there is a barbershop. Or, at least that’s what the sign on the building outside advertised it to be. When a man outside the shop was asked if anyone was getting a haircut inside he laughed and said, “I’ve never seen it.” The Barbershop Internet Cafe sits across the street from Kenneth Stanford’s place. Stanford said he’s been inside the cafe but has never gambled there. “There are no barber chairs,” he said, “but there were computers set up … on about four different rows on each side.” The Barbershop Internet Café was one of six illegal gambling locations agents closed down this week. All were connected to one suspect.
