UNCASVILLE, Conn. (AP) - Two blackjack players and three dealers conspired to cheat a Connecticut casino operated by the Mohegan tribe out of over $100,000 in 2018, according to tribal police.

Three of the five people named in court documents have been charged to date with their involvement in illegal bets, according to an arrest warrant affidavit written by Mohegan Tribal Police Detective John Graves.

Former Mohegan Sun dealers Darius J. Rook, 22, of Norwich and Aneesah Ahmad, 24, of Montville and player Victor Jesus Garcia, 36, of Yonkers, New York, have all pleaded not guilty to first-degree larceny and cheating at gambling, The Day reported Monday.

The investigation began in May 2018 when the casino surveillance department began a review of dealer error between Garcia and another dealer.

Garcia allegedly cheated with all three dealers for a total loss of $83,850 to the casino. Another player cheated with Rook and Dixon for a total of $20,525, according to police.
