Louisiana troopers arrest 2 accused of swindling casino

KENNER, La. (AP) — A man and woman accused of cheating a casino in Louisiana have been arrested.

The Times-Picayune reports (http://bit.ly/2qmPeoU ) 36-year-old Kevin Gray and 36-year-old Josekeitha White were booked Monday and charged with partnering with a craps dealer to swindle a value estimated between $500 and $5000 from Treasure Chest Casino. State Police say their alleged accomplice, 49-year-old Anthony Thompson, was arrested in February.

Louisiana trooper Jeff Argrave arrested Thompson after a casino supervisor said he suspected a dealer of cheating with two patrons after reviewing surveillance video. Thompson is accused of stealing house-money by paying out false wins to Gray and White. Investigators determined the two played Thompson's table more than 70 times over a period of two to three weeks.

Gray and White were released Tuesday on $15,000 bond.
