LINCOLN – A Twin River table game player was issued a permanent ejection for allegedly counting cards in violation of state table gaming rules following an incident at the casino early Saturday morning.
Lt. Wayne Bouthillette reported John A. Lemieux, 49, of Brockton, Mass., was issued the ejection after Twin River Security Capt. William Shepherd investigated the reported incident of card counting at 3:18 a.m. Saturday.
Lemieux was advised that if he returns to the Twin River property he will face criminal trespassing charges, Bouthillette said. Lemieux was escorted out of the building without incident, police said.
In a second incident of alleged card counting at the table games area Saturday morning, Michael A. Thibeau, 41, of Rockland, Mass., was also issued a permanent ejection notice over the incident. Capt. Shepherd reported Thibeau was given the necessary paperwork for the ejection and notified he would face criminal trespass charges if he returned to the casino, police said.
And in a third gaming incident investigated by police at Twin River over the weekend, Lidia Savino, 56, of Medford, Mass., was alleged to have taken a gambling chip following an incident at 10:04 p.m. Friday.
Patrolman Edward Walusiak reported Savino was alleged to have taken a $500 chip from another player at the blsckjack tables adjacent to the Event Center.
The victim told Walusiak she could not find her $500 chip, and a check of surveillance video identified Savino as the party believed to have taken the chip.
