A man accused of scamming a Baton Rouge casino out of thousands of dollars was arrested Thursday.

The East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff’s Office reported Emiliano Rodriguez, 28, of Bronx, NY, faces swindling and other charges.

According to the probable cause report, Rodriguez used a “color up scam” multiple times at L’Auberge Casino to steal a total of $5,760.

Rodriguez is charged with cheating and swindling (three counts) and criminal conspiracy.

He is being held with no bond in the East Baton Rouge Parish Prison because he is also a fugitive from justice.

The case was investigated by the gaming enforcement division of Louisiana State Police.
