Twin Rivers blackjack dealer charged with cheating

Twin River is now home to 80 table games.

LINCOLN, R.I. (AP) — A blackjack dealer at the Twin River Casino is accused of cheating his employers.

State police say 31-year-old Luis Pabon of North Providence has been charged with multiple counts of cheating in the performance of duty as a dealer and paying an amount greater than required.

Police say they spent three months watching Pabon after the Rhode Island Lottery, which helps regulate the casino, told them about possible collusion between the dealer and patrons.

Pabon was accused of steering certain cards to customers and offering improper insurance bets.

He was arrested during his shift Wednesday and is due in Superior Court in Providence on Aug. 14.

He also has been barred from the casino.  A phone call to a number listed for Pabon went unanswered Friday.
