Casino Bettor Used Invisible Ink, Special Contacts to Cheat: Cops

A New Jersey man has been accused of cheating at the Mohegan Sun Casino after marking cards with an ink-like substance that he could see by wearing special contact lenses, according to state police.

Bruce Koloshi, of Summit, N.J., is accused of giving a fake name when he was processed and fingerprinted after his arrest early Sunday morning.

The Day of New London reports that a computer check of his fingerprints identified him.

He was charged with cheating, conspiracy, criminal impersonation and being a fugitive from justice. The computer check showed that Louisiana state police issued a felony arrest warrant for him.

Koloshi is held on a $510,000 bond and is to be arraigned in Norwich Superior Court on Monday. It was not known Monday morning if he's represented by a lawyer.

The Advocate, a newspaper in Louisiana, also reports that Koloshi was allowed to leave the L’Auberge Casino in Baton Rouge after handing over a contact lens container and more than $3,000 in casino chips.

He is suspected of trying to cheat at casinos in Las Vegas, according to the Advocate, and “denied any wrong-doing” in a phone call.
