A casino employee duped a mentally disabled coworker out of $45,000 by telling the man he was contributing to a lottery account, police said.
Relatives of the victim said he is very gullible. Starting as early as 2001, the victim paid Flynn $240 a week in cash, according to the arrest warrant affidavit.
Police say Flynn told them he loaned the victim $35,000 in cash and they were "about even." The victim denies that claim.
Flynn was arraigned Monday in Norwich Superior Court on the charge of first-degree larceny. He's being held on a $150,000 bond.
