5 Accused of Laundering Money Through Casino Slots



KANSAS CITY, Kan. - Five Kansas residents are accused of trafficking in marijuana and laundering the profits through slot machines at a Kansas City, Kansas, casino. U.S. Attorney Barry Grissom says a federal indictment handed down on Wednesday alleges the defendants laundered more than $200,000 in cash by depositing the money into slot machines and then cashing out without playing.
 
The investigation began after the Kansas Racing and Gaming Commission contacted the Kansas Bureau of Investigation about suspicious activity at Hollywood Casino. Prosecutors say the defendants were seen depositing large amounts of money in small denominations into the machines, cashing out and redeeming ticket vouchers without making wagers.
 
An attorney for the lead defendant, 30-year-old Gregory Rapp of Gardner, was not available for comment Wednesday afternoon. No attorneys were listed for the other four.
