Mohegan — A table games dealer and a gambler playing in the Earth Casino at Mohegan Sun were arrested early Saturday morning on charges they were cheating, according to state police.
Security at Mohegan Sun contacted state police detectives assigned to the Casino Unit after observing the dealer, Peggy Lin, 40, of 10 Sachem Plains Road, Norwich, apparently manipulating the deal of Pai Gow Tile, a table game, so that Bi De Zhen, 43, of 1Manhattan, N.Y., would win.
Lin and Zhen were arrested. They are each charged with cheating while lawfully gaming, third-degree larceny, and third-degree conspiracy to commit larceny. They were each released on $5,000 bond and are scheduled to appear in Norwich Superior Court on Oct. 1.
