Gray was arrested and charged with theft by failure to make required disposition of property, a Class C Felony. Officials do not think this is the first time he's scammed someone.
"It doesn't seem like this is something new for him, our investigation is revealing," said Stump, who added that Gray has been linked to previous incidents in southern Indiana and Ohio.
The sheriff said thanks to quick clicks and a careful eye, Gray will not be able to play with his or anyone else's money for the time being.
"I do appreciate the authorities at the casino for being observant, seeing something suspicious," said Stump. "The money that he spent at the casino, I am sorry to say, that money is just gone. I don't think there's any way to get that back."
Belterra officials and the homeowner did not want to comment.
Gray is being held at the Switzerland County Jail and is expected to be brought to the Spencer County Jail in Kentucky within the next few days. He declined our request for an interview.
