HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) -- Two men arrested earlier this year on cheating allegations at the Mohegan Sun casino were charged Tuesday with carrying out the same scam at the Foxwoods Resort Casino, police said.
Police and casino security officials said one man would distract a dealer while the other swapped tiles to improve his hand in a game known as pai gow. After they were arrested in June at Mohegan Sun, Connecticut state police said they retraced their steps and discovered they had done the same thing at Foxwoods.
Chaoyu Wu, 32, of Brooklyn, N.Y., and Tan Guo Yu, 39, of Boston, were charged Thursday with cheating, fourth-degree larceny, and conspiracy to commit cheating. They had been charged previously with third-degree larceny and cheating.
