It may look like slight-of-hand but the charges being leveled against five casino-goers aren't so slight. Hamilton County Prosecutor Joe Deters is indicting five people for casino gaming offenses.
The alleged thieves are accused of stealing $50-$500 worth of chips. In Ohio, casino gaming offenses are felonies. If convicted on all charges, each defendant faces up to two years in prison.
Deters says the five were working individually. While the amounts stolen aren't very high, Deters says Tuesday's high-profile indictments are about sending a message to would-be cheaters.
