SCHENECTADY - A Rotterdam man conspired with another person to steal $4,000 from Rivers Casino in Schenectady, authorities said.
The scheme involved allegations of fraudulently getting a cash advance from a debit card, a prosecutor said.
Eric C. Abraham, 33, of Schermerhorn Road, Rotterdam, was arrested Monday and charged with one count each of third-degree grand larceny and fourth-degree conspiracy, felonies.
The incident happened just after 3 a.m. on the morning of July 2, according to police allegations filed in court.
Abraham is accused of working together with the second person to take the money. The other person got the cash advance and then left the casino and allegedly handed over the money to Abraham, prosecutor Jessica Lorusso said. The transaction then later proved fraudulent, Lorusso said.
Information on the second person allegedly involved was unavailable.
