Two Women Video Gaming Cheats Busted in Louisiana!

Two Lake Charles women are accused of cheating at least eight video poker casinos out of thousands of dollars. State police say 33-year-old Jennifer Stewart and 33-year-old Alisha Baudoin redeemed counterfeit tickets at businesses in Calcasieu Parish.

The women are charged with theft and monetary instrument abuse. Early last week, troopers assigned to the Gaming Enforcement Section of the Louisiana State Police Bureau of Investigations were notified that two unknown people were cashing in counterfeit gaming tickets. Troopers say they identified Baudoin and Stewart and obtained warrants for their arrests. "Stewart has an extensive criminal history including previous arrests for fraud, monetary instrument abuse, identify theft, and drug related offenses," Sgt. James Anderson said.
Stewerat's bond is set at $100,000, and bond for Baudion is $35,000. Additional charges and arrests are likely.
