Accused gaming cheat caught in eastern Pennsylvania
BETHLEHEM (AP) — One of the fugitives most wanted by Nevada gambling regulators has been arrested across the country at a Pennsylvania casino.
The Express-Times reported that Jubreal Chahine, 40, was spotted Saturday afternoon at the Sands Casino Resort in Bethlehem.
State police took Chahine into custody without incident after being alerted by Sands employees.
According to the Nevada Gaming Control Board’s website, Chahine faces multiple felony charges in that state for cheating-related offenses.
Chahine, who lives in Las Vegas, is being held at the Northampton County Prison in lieu of $150,000 bail. It was not immediately clear if he has a lawyer.
