The casino is owned by billionaire Sheldon Adelson, an ardent opponent of online gambling legislation in the U.S.

Bethlehem police were dispatched to the Sands Casino Resort Bethlehem about 3:45 a.m. Jan. 13 for a report of a trespasser. 

Sands security told police that 49-year-old Jin Longzhu, of Los Angeles, was detained after having been formally evicted from the casino in March 2018, according to court records.  Security also informed police they had spotted Longzhu defecating behind some trees on the property.

Longzhu had been charged on four other occasions with trespassing on the Sands property.

Authorities charged Longzhu with misdemeanor counts of defiant trespass and open lewdness and summary counts of public drunkenness and harassment. District Judge Vivian Zumas arraigned him, setting bail at $5,000. Longzhu failed to post bail and was sent to Northampton County Prison to await a preliminary hearing tentatively scheduled for Friday.
