BATON ROUGE- Sheriff's deputies arrested a man who is accused of trying to get away with stealing someone's cash slip from an area casino.

Jamey Lobell was booked into jail earlier in September. He is charged with felony theft and misdemeanors of disturbing the peace by intoxication and resisting an officer.

According to court records, Lobell was apprehended after a gamer at L'Auberge reported Lobell had hit the "cash out" button on the slot machine the victim was playing. The slip was for $1,025. Lobell is accused of taking the slip and denying having removed it when he was questioned.

Deputies said Lobell ran from them while they were in the process of detaining him and was apprehended on the casino's sky walk.

Lobell is seen on surveillance video hiding the slip between two slot machines, court records reported.
