NJ man says he gambled in Conn. for bond money

Posted: Updated:

NORWICH, Conn. (AP) - A New Jersey man accused of cheating with marked cards told police he came to Mohegan Sun to raise bond money for his anticipated arrest in Louisiana.

The Day of New London reports that Bruce Koloshi of Summit, N.J., also known as Jeffrey William Elliot, was arraigned Monday in Norwich Superior Court on charges he marked cards at a poker table on Sunday with ink visible only with special contact lenses.

A police report says Koloshi said he was supposed to surrender in Baton Rouge, La., on Wednesday to face charges he was using invisible ink to mark cards at L'Auberge Casino.

Koloshi is charged with cheating, conspiracy to commit larceny, criminal impersonation and being a fugitive from justice.

Bond was set at $300,000 and the case was continued to Sept. 27.
