A supervisor, dealer and patron of the Horseshoe Casino in Iowa were arrested and accused of a roulette scam, which had allowed them to earn thousands of dollars. To be sure, such activities were illegal.
Three scammers managed to pocket over $20,000 by performing illegal manipulations with casino chips, making bets instead of visitors and accepting late wagers. The fraudulent scheme was used in February and March.
The charges were filed against Jonathan Rumery, Cody Schroeder, and Jonathan Waugh. The first two former employees of Horseshoe Casino were accused of the first-degree theft, conspiracy, and cheating. Waugh was charged only with cheating.
One of the gamblers noticed the fraud and informed the management of the gambling house about it.
The casino where this event took place is owned by Caesars Entertainment Corp.
