(EAST CHICAGO) - The Indiana Gaming Commission cracked down on an alleged cheating ring that led to the theft of thousands of dollars from Ameristar Casino in East Chicago.

Indiana Gaming Commission Director of Enforcement Kenny Rowan says his office found out an Ameristar dealer was not verbally booking bets that a patron was making at a craps table. The Gaming Commission would not release any names.

It is also trying to pinpoint how long the cheating has been going on between the patron and dealer and if others were involved. Kenny Rowan says theft charges will eventually be filed by the Lake County prosecutor's office.

An Ameristar Casino spokesperson said the company does not comment on personnel matters, but said the casino always fully cooperates with the Indiana Gaming Commission and other authorities in any type of investigation where their assistance is needed.
