MONTVILLE, Conn. (AP) _ A New Jersey man has been accused of cheating at the Mohegan Sun Casino after State Police say he marked cards with an ink-like substance that he could see by wearing special contact lenses.

Bruce Koloshi, of Summit, N.J., is accused of giving a fake name when he was processed and fingerprinted after his arrest early Sunday morning. The Day of New London reports (http://bit.ly/17CW7oe ) that a computer check of his fingerprints identified him.

He was charged with cheating, conspiracy, criminal impersonation and being a fugitive from justice. The computer check showed that Louisiana state police issued a felony arrest warrant for him.

Koloshi is held on a $510,000 bond and is to be arraigned in Norwich Superior Court on Monday. It was not known Monday morning if he’s represented by a lawyer.
