UNCASVILLE, Conn. (AP) — Tribal police in Connecticut have charged one of two suspects linked to the theft of $7,000 of gambling chips from a casino customer before punching the patron during his escape.
Mohegan police arrested Niren J. Davis of Norwich at an appearance Tuesday in Danielson Superior Court. The 33-year-old Davis was in court on unrelated weapon and narcotics possession charges.
Police charged Davis with accessory to third-degree robbery and accessory to third-degree larceny. He was held on a $25,000 bond, and it wasn't known Thursday if he's represented by a lawyer.
Police said they also have obtained an arrest warrant for 28-year-old Jorge Morales in connection with the Friday robbery.
Police said they identified the two men as suspects within 48 hours of the alleged theft after reviewing surveillance video and distributing photos.
