UNCASVILLE, Conn. (AP) _ A man was arrested at the Mohegan Sun casino over the weekend on charges that he stole $25,000 in poker chips.

Twenty-six-year-old Zachary Lewin of Old Saybrook, Conn. is charged with third-degree larceny.

The Day of New London (http://bit.ly/GHuXE0 ) reports that he was accused of reaching over a plastic barrier on a gaming table to steal the chips around 2:30 a.m. Saturday.

Lewin was arrested by state police when he tried to cash in the chips and was later released on a $2,500 bond. It was not immediately clear if he had an attorney and a no phone listing was available for him.
