Costa Rica sportsbook 5Dimes issued a statement to at least one media outlet in regard to the alleged kidnapping of its colorful owner, Sean "Tony" Creighton, 43 of Morgantown, West Virginia.

"Tony" was said to have been traveling through San Isidro, Heredia and driving a Porsche Cayenne Turbo vehicle late night September 25 when upwards of five men intercepted the vehicle.  "Tony" was then apprehended.

"Tony's" wife claims to have paid a ransom of $750K ransom via Bitcoin and has yet to hear back from the captors.

The following statement was issued to SportsBookReview:

"Despite recent news, 5Dimes Group board of directors and its over 300 employees would like to reassure its clientele the fundamentals of 5Dimes Group operating model remain unchanged.

We continue striving to deliver the best gambling experience to our customers, always aiming to innovate in the industry with more and better betting options to choose from.

Our thoughts and prayers join the rest of the online gambling industry for Tony’s safe return to his family."

While "Tony" is said to have been the sole owner, Gambling911.com sources say that 5Dimes is a "well oiled machine" that should be able to operate long beyond "Tony's" absense.
