BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — Three men are accused of cheating a Baton Rouge casino out of $56,000 by allegedly manipulating dice in a craps game.

Louisiana State Police tell The Advocate authorities arrested 35-year-old Allan Arana, of Las Vegas, at Louis Armstrong Airport in New Orleans. Warrants are out for 42-year-old Lim Tan and 47-year-old Jaime Iglesias. The men, all of whom are from the Philippines, face a count of theft over $25,000.

Arana, who police say was arrested in Natchez, Mississippi, for a similar incident is being held at the East Baton Rouge Parish Jail. It was unknown if he has an attorney.
