Men arrested after nearly $200,000 stolen from casino
MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) — Two men have been arrested on charges of stealing nearly $200,000 from an Indian casino in Montgomery.
Federal court records show that Timothy Dean Pettiway and Jory D’Michael Trayvunn Dumas were arrested Tuesday on theft charges in the Aug. 10 heist at Wind Creek casino. However, court records show prosecutors are seeking to dismiss Dumas from the complaint.
An FBI agent wrote in charging documents that $192,800 was missing from two customer kiosks near the casino floor. The agent said surveillance video showed that a casino employee, who was not charged, had left keys on top of a machine that had been malfunctioning. The agent said the video showed Pettiway kneeling in front of the kiosk holding a money cassette.
Defense attorneys couldn’t immediately be reached for comment.
