BUTTE, Mont. (AP) - Authorities allege three people bilked Anaconda casinos out of $2,100 by doctoring receipts.

The Montana Standard reports (http://tinyurl.com/ptb28k3 ) 30-year-old Dylan Edge and 38-year-old Jerry Johnson appeared in court Thursday on charges of theft by common scheme. An arrest warrant was issued for 32-year-old Miranda Kennedy on the same charge.

No phone listing could be found for any of them and it wasn’t known if they had attorneys. Edge and Johnson were released on their own recognizance.

Anaconda Police Chief Tim Barkell says two casinos were bilked in March. In one case, a receipt for an 80-cent payout was modified to say $800, and in two cases a $6.50 payout was altered to say $650.
