Former casino employee indicted in money laundering conspiracy

SCRANTON – A Stroudsburg man who is a former player coordinator for the Mount Airy Casino Resort, was indicted on federal charges of conspiracy to commit money laundering.

Ashley Brosius, 30, and an unindicted co-conspirator are accused of defrauding the casino by engaging in a money laundering scheme involving the use of stolen names and PINs (personal identification numbers) that were tied to players’ club cards. The fraudulently created cards were then given to the unindicted co-conspirator to gamble with, primarily at slot machines. The criminal information also alleges that the scheme began in November 2014 and continued to November 2015, and that the fraudulent free play amounted to approximately $140,000.

The case was investigated by the Internal Revenue Service, Criminal Investigations and the Pennsylvania State Police. Assistant United States Attorney Michelle Olshefski is prosecuting the case.

 Brosius faces up to 20 years in prison if convicted.
