Major Casino Cheating Ring about to get busted in Connecticut!

Mohegan Sun Casino is again hit by Cheating Ring!

The details are fuzzy but here is the first news release about a major casino cheating operation going down at the Mohegan Sun.


The state police casino unit arrested a Memphis, Tenn., man Thursday in connection with a cheating incident at Mohegan Sun.

Richard S. Taylor, 41, was charged with first-degree larceny and cheating while gaming. He was served with an arrest warrant when he appeared in court on an unrelated charge, according to state police.

Taylor was held on a $100,000 cash bond and is scheduled to appear in Norwich Superior Court today.

State police said the arrest is part of an ongoing investigation and that more arrests are expected. No further information was available.

My take: What makes this big is the size of that cash bond, a hundred grand! I have never heard of Richard S. Taylor, but if he is being held on such a large bond for a casino cheating charge, then this has got to be the first drippings of a major casino storm. Remember, the huge international baccarat scam headed by the Tran Organization that got busted last May had victimized both the Mohegan Sun and its neighboring casino giant Foxwoods.

Stay tuned for more on this impending mega scam as soon as I get it.
