Ottawa Canada May 30 2012 Cops in Gatineau have arrested three men from New York City, suspected of trying to rip off the Casino de Lac Leamy to the tune of $13,000.
It happened around 11 p.m. Saturday, when cops got a call from the casino security staff about a fraud at a gaming table.
Security staffers recognized the trio, believing they were responsible for other frauds that happened between April 17-21.
The three individuals, originally from the Dominican Republic, are known to police for gaming fraud — mostly in the U.S.
Cops are seeking a fourth suspect– a man in his early 30s, also a native of the Dominican Republic, who lives in New York.
The three men — two of them are 25 years old, the other is 23 — could face charges of fraud over $5,000 and attempted fraud.
They are currently in custody and could appear in Gatineau court Tuesday.
