    Declines in casino revenue is affecting the state budget.

    A group of people stole more than $90,000 from Foxwoods Resort Casino by fraudulently accessing the accounts of customers who were awarded free slot machine play, according to State Police.

    The Day of New London reports that the accusations are detailed in an arrest warrant affidavit for J. Antonio Cifizzari, 39, of New Britain, who was charged on Friday with first-degree larceny.

    The affidavit says Foxwoods Security began investigating when a patron complained in September that $150 worth of bonus slot play had already been redeemed from her Foxwoods Rewards Account.

    Cifizzari is being held in lieu of $125,500 at the Corrigan-Radgowski Correctional Institution and has pleaded not guilty.

    It was not known Tuesday morning if he is represented by a lawyer.
