A 46-year-old New Jersey man was arrested late Thursday after tipping a casino cocktail server with the powerful sleeping drug Valium.

The incident occurred at Bethlehem, PA’s Sands Casino and comes just one day after a local District Attorney said he would refrain from prosecuting cases occurring at that establishment. 

David Carnevale, of Caldwell in Essex County, was charged with possession with intent to deliver drugs. It happened at 6:50 p.m. on the main casino floor and the drug was recovered, police said.

He was taken to Northampton County Prison to be arraigned at 11 p.m. before District Judge Roy Manwaring II, police said.  Carnevale was later released on bail, according to court records.

The Northampton County District Attorney, John Morganelli, came out this week saying he would not go after individuals accused of stealing from the Sands unless it honored a $10 million agreement with local government officials.

It was unclear how local law enforcement would react to this latest incident.
