A 51-year old gambler is being charged for allegedly trying to cheat more than $38,000 from the Crazy Moose casino in Snohomish County.
The man in question is Fredrick Steven Nolan, who attempted the stunt back in January this year. Investigators claim that Nolan visited the casino almost every evening across a 6 week period; taking care to never visit the same dealer more than twice a night.
On one surveillance tape, Nolan was seen to be distracting the dealer during 3 rounds of High Card Flush. The video shows the gambler innocently requesting an exchange of chips before moving a card from one part of the table to the other. All within a few seconds of the dealer’s back being turned.
That one act alone cost the casino around $3,280, but prosecutors allege that Nolan tallied up around $38,335 in the time he spent at the establishment.
New evidence suggests that the man may have performed similar acts throughout casinos in King County. While prosecutors look into these new claims, Nolan will only faces charges with a felony of gross demeanor against the Crazy Moose casino.
