Three men have been charged in an alleged scheme to defraud the Pickering Casino, including a card dealer accused of colluding with gamblers.

They later arrested three people;

    • two counts of fraud over $5,000

    • cheat at play
    • fraud over $5,000
  • Noel Sarsonas, 66 of Scarborough

All three suspects have since been released with conditions. They will appear in the Oshawa courthouse to answer the charges later.
