NEW LONDON, Conn. (AP) — A New Jersey man has been banned from Connecticut’s casinos after pleading guilty to using invisible ink to mark cards at one.

Bruce Koloshi of Summit, New Jersey, was sentenced Wednesday to the 10 months he served since his arrest last September at Mohegan Sun.

Prosecutors say the 55-year-old Koloshi has cheating convictions in Nevada, Iowa and Illinois and is facing charges in Louisiana.

The Day of New London reports he was taken into custody at a poker table after a surveillance operator notified police that he was “clearly marking the cards” with ink that could only be seen when the video was viewed in black and white.

Police found a piece of fabric with the ink on it in his pocket and said he was wearing specialized contact lenses.
