New rules target racy Vietnamese cafes in Calif.

GARDEN GROVE, CA Officers plan to make rounds of the 37 cafes in the suburban Southern California city starting as soon as this weekend.

The goal is to ensure cafes no longer feature arcade games rigged for illegal gambling, and that scantily clad waitresses leave something to the imagination.

Police say crime has been reported at coffeehouses, and 23 people were arrested in March during an illegal gambling bust.

Some coffeehouse owners and managers say business has fallen as a result of the enforcement.
