WEST MIFFLIN, Pa. (AP) - The fired manager of a Pittsburgh-area mall has been charged with stealing more than $51,000 which he then spent mostly as casinos.

Online court records don’t list an attorney for 51-year-old John Sabino, of Wexford, who also doesn’t have a listed phone.

The Allegheny County district attorney’s office on Monday announced that Sabino was charged with theft and surrendered last week.

According to a criminal complaint, Sabino had checks made out to himself for events scheduled at the Century III Mall in West Mifflin. Investigators say the events either never occurred or that vendors who put on the events were paid directly and not through Sabino. He was fired in August when the money was found to be missing.

The DA says Sabino deposited the checks in his bank account and withdraw it at casino ATMs.
