New Jersey man accused of cheating at Baton Rouge casino

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

A man wanted in Baton Rouge for allegedly using invisible ink to cheat at a casino was arrested Sunday morning in Connecticut.

State Police say Bruce Koloshi, 54, allegedly marked cards as he played at the L'Auberge Casino, using an ink only visible through an infrared lens.  Investigators suspect Koloshi was wearing modified contact lenses to view the ink while playing.  Security video shows that Koloshi repeatedly reached beneath the table and inked his fingers before marking the cards.

According to reports, when confronted as he left the casino, Koloshi voluntarily surrendered his winnings of more than $3,200.  Due to a lack of evidence at the time, he was released.

Investigators say Koloshi was arrested in Connecticut after casino security used an infrared camera filter to catch him in the act.

Koloshi faces charges in Louisiana of cheating and swindling, and simple criminal damage to property.  He has been charged with cheating, conspiracy to commit larceny and criminal impersonation in Connecticut.
