2 indicted on felonies of cheating at casino

Two Toledo men were indicted by a Lucas County grand jury Wednesday on felony charges that they cheated at Hollywood Casino Toledo.

Jeffrey Stevens, 52, of 3018 123rd St., and Jeffery Burks, 35, of 1331 Peck St., are each charged with an unnamed casino felony offense and face up to one year in prison if convicted.

Authorities said Mr. Stevens was at the casino July 5 when he allegedly doubled a wager to $80 at the blackjack table after he had already won the hand. Mr. Burks allegedly pulled back a $25 bet at the blackjack table on July 12 after the wager lost.

In both instances, casino officials were able to review the incidents on surveillance cameras.
