A (now former) blackjack dealer has admitted to stealing $10,000 from the casino where he worked. This month, Jeremy Brown, age 42, pleaded guilty in federal court to a felony conspiracy charge. According to court documents, from December 2015 to January 2016, he worked with three other people in order to steal money from the Dakota Sioux Casino & Hotel in Watertown, South Dakota.

Because of his admittance, his second charge of ‘theft by an employee of a gaming establishment on Indian land and aiding and abetting' was subsequently dismissed. According to his signed plea agreement, he must pay $2,000 in restitution.

The other three suspects, Jordan Rondell (age 29), Lito Bolocon (age 44) and Fern Gill (age 52) have pleaded not guilty to charges of felony conspiracy and felony theft by an employee of a gaming establishment on Indian land and aiding and abetting. They shall go to trial in Aberdeen federal court this July.

The court documents state that Rondell was a card player, Bolocon was the pit boss overlooking the blackjack gaming area, while Brown and Gill were the blackjack dealers there.

Even if Rondell had bet on losing hands, Brown and Gill still allegedly paid him, for which Bolocon is accused of knowingly permitting it. Bolocon, along with Brown and Gill, were accused of getting a portion of the money. All three were indicted in February.

Meanwhile, Brown's sentencing is scheduled in August 1.

He faces a $250,000 fine and a sentence of up to five years in jail.

It must be very tempting for any of these dealers' in the casinos', to try and do this. There is so much security nowadays at these establishments, that it is near impossible to not get caught

That´s really amazing from the dealer to steal money from the casino where he worked. But normally the casino have a table manager to watch the staff. But perhaps the dealer want to play with the money in a other casino Blink

It is sad to see such thing, I mean the casino gave the guy a chance to work there as I could imagine they had a lot applicants for any job in such casino and to do that is not a good move... but hey the world is full of unfaithful people so this is not the first one.

probably for lot of people is hard to work with this kind of amounts and they see chance to take some money!when they see how people bet and what amount are on table,they think that they can have benefit from it!but now he will pay for this!

Not that i support them stealing in any way, or any amount,
but why someone would risk a job with a steady income to get 10k.
Plain stupid.
Now the fine is at 250k Smile plus he is facing a jail time.
And the funny thing is that his "buddies" pleaded not guilty.

Yes me too think similar to Mober, why risk your job and regular money to only steal 10 thousands of dollars, yes it is not small money, but he probabky earns like this in 3 months, so is it a good rusk? I don't think so, nut if he steals 1 million then yes it is a good rusk

Incredible things to see in this world of casinos .. good story.

There's more going on here than we know. Of course it isn't worth a decent job to steal 10K. Maybe he actually stole more but they can't pin it on him. Maybe the other conspirators forced or blackmailed him into doing this.

We can never assume that the story we hear is the whole story, right?

yeah pretty stupid dealer by the looks of things... 10k dollaoros doesn't look too big too sacrifice the job... butt- the thing is, i don't really think that this 10k would have been the last amount, it was just the starting point
 dule-vu03/06/2017 12:34:28 GMT
10K dollars is nothing in todays world and he earn that in some period of working there,but now he wont have chance!maybe he had some problems and thats why he stealed this amount,but probably he just took chance because he worked with big amounts!stupid from him!

The majority of casino croupiers are earning a modest income. They don't live a lavish lifestyle. Only a small portion of the croupiers makes more than $75,000 annually in the United States. That is the reality.
