Casino Scam


AFTER
INVESTIGATORS
SAY THEY
WORKED
TOGETHER TO
CHEAT
HORSESHOE
CASINO.
TWO OF THE MEN
ARE CASINO
EMPLOYEES.
OUR ERIN
MURRAY’S BEEN
DIGGING INTO
THE CASE — ERIN
HOW MUCH DO
THEY BELIEVE
THESE MEN
STOLE?
MORE THAN
TWENTY
THOUSAND
DOLLARS.
I SPOKE TO
INVESTIGATORS
TODAY — THEY
SAY THEY WERE
ABLE TO LINK
THE MEN TO THE
CRIME BECAUSE
OF THESE RIGHT
HERE.
THE MORE THAN
900 CAMERAS
INSIDE
HORSESHOE,
SURVEILLANCE
VIDEO CAPTURED
THE MEN IN THE
ACT.
AT CASINOS —
YOU ARE NOT
ALLOWED TO
MAKE YOUR OWN
LUCK.
NATS: CHIPS
BUT IN MARCH AT
HORSESHOE
CASINO
INVESTIGATORS
NOTICED
SOMETHING AT
ONE OF THE
GAME TABLES.
“THERE WAS A
DEALER THAT WAS
DOING SOME ACTIVE
CHEATING
MECHANISM ON THE
ROULETTE TABLE AT
HORSESHOE
CASINO. AND THERE
WAS A PATRON HE
WAS CONSISTENTLY
CHEATING FOR.”
IOWA D-C-I SAYS
JONATHAN
WAUGH WAS THE
DEALER AND
CODY
SCHROEDER
WAS THE
PATRON.
BUT THE
INVESTIGATION
THEN LED D-C-I
TO BELIEVE A
HORSESHOE
CASINO PIT BOSS
JONATHAN
RUMERY WAS
ALSO IN ON THE
SCHEME.
“HERE’S HOW IT
WORKED —
BASICALLY DALES
SAYS THE MEN WERE
PAST POSTING BETS,
WHICH IS PLACING
BETS AFTER A CALL
IS MADE. OR ONCE A
NUMBER WAS
CHOSEN, THE
DEALER WOULD ADD
MORE CHIPS TO THE
WINNING NUMBER
PILE.”
INVESTIGATORS
SAY THE THREE
DID THIS OVER
SEVERAL WEEKS
— SPLITTING THE
EARNINGS
AFTERWARDS.
BEFORE THEIR
ARRESTS —
INVESTIGATORS
BELIEVE THEY
MADE OFF WITH
20-THOUSAND
DOLLARS.
“WE DO SEE
PATRONS THAT TRY
TO CHEAT, BUT WITH
THE CONSPIRACY
THAT IS ALLEGED IN
THIS KIND OF
ACTIVITY. WHERE
YOU NOT ONLY HAVE
AN EMPLOYEE, BUT
YOU HAVE A
SUPERVISOR, THAT
IS TRYING TO TAKE
ADVANTAGE FROM
THE CASINO ….. THAT
WAS PARTICULARLY
ALARMING TO US
THAT THAT KIND OF
MOVE WAS MADE IN
THIS CASE.”
A LOT OF
CHARGES IN THIS
CASE — BUT
HERE ARE THE
BIG ONES:
WAUGH — THE
DEALER — ONE
FELONY OF
CHEATING OR
GAME ALTERING.
RUMERY AND
SCHROEDER —
EACH HAVE FOUR
FELONIES — THE
MOST SEVERE
ONGOING
CRIMINAL
CONDUCT, CLASS
B.
I DID SPEAK TO
RUMERY’S
FATHER — THEY
ARE SHOCKED
WITH THE NEWS,
SAYING RUMERY
HAD WORKED AT
THE CASINO
THREE YEARS.
BUT WAS PUT ON
SUSPENSION
BECAUSE OF
THIS
INVESTIGATION IN
MARCH.
QUESTION — TWO
EMPLOYEES
ARRESTED, THAT
IS SHOCKING
BECAUSE DON’T
CASINO
EMPLOYEES GO
THROUGH
EXTENSIVE
BACKGROUND
CHECKS?
YES — SOMEONE
LIKE WAUGH
BEING A DEALER
IT WOULD HAVE
BEEN MORE
BASIC.
BUT RUMERY —
BEING A PIT BOSS
— DEFINITELY
HAD STRICT ONE
DONE.
BOTH
EMPLOYEES NO
LONGER WORK
AT HORSESHOE.
