A Middlesex County, New Jersey, man is accused of cheating 54 times at craps last winter at Sands Casino Resort Bethlehem.

Tyrone S. Jackson, 41, of South Plainfield, is wanted by Pennsylvania State Police on 54 counts of knowingly by trick/fraud win or reduce a loss, a misdemeanor charge.

He was expected to turn himself in Friday morning at the Bethlehem court of District Judge Joseph Barner.

Jackson, on Feb. 10 and 11, was playing craps at two tables in the casino on South Side Bethlehem, according to investigators with the state police Bureau of Gaming Enforcement.

He positioned himself at the tables so he had easy access to the pass-line wagering position, police said.

He would place his wager on the pass-line and if the dice roll was unfavorable, he would use sleight of hand to remove his wager before the dealer could do so as a lost wager, police said.

On one occasion, Jackson allegedly added chips to a pass-line wager following a favorable dice roll.

It was all caught on surveillance by Sands staff, who notified troopers stationed at the casino, according to court records. Investigators identified Jackson as the perpetrator via video surveillance and his New Jersey driver's license, police said.

Jackson "engaged in this behavior a total of 54 times between the above dates, thereby reducing his losses or illegitimately winning for a total benefit of $755," police wrote in court papers.
