SCHENECTADY — An Altamont man is accused of stealing casino chips from a table at Rivers Casino & Resort, authorities said.

Nicholas G. Robinson, 27, was arrested July 11 on one count each of second-degree gaming fraud and petty larceny, both misdemeanors.

Robinson is accused of taking 47 white $1 chips from Table 701 at Rivers around 3:15 a.m. June 19 without having won them, according to police allegations filed in court.

Gaming fraud is defined as obtaining "anything of value from casino gaming without having won such amount by a bet or wager."

Robinson was confronted after the incident and returned 10 of the chips, according to the allegations.

The incident was captured on surveillance video, according to the allegations.
