UNCASVILLE, Conn. — (Associated Press) - A former blackjack dealer at a Connecticut casino has been charged with conspiring with two gamblers to cheat the casino out of more than $60,000.

The Day reports that 49-year-old David C. Peters, of New London, is charged with conspiracy to commit first-degree larceny, first-degree larceny and cheating in connection with the alleged cheating last fall at the Mohegan Sun casino.

Tribal police say Peters allowed the players to increase wagers after the time to do so had passed. He also allegedly paid them when they had tied or lost, or diverted cards that would break their hands.

Police say one player won nearly $34,000 at Peters’ table.

Peters’ attorney, Peter Catania, said Thursday he is still reviewing the facts of the case and it would be premature to comment.
