A New York man, who cops say allegedly used a phony check to buy an expensive watch, was arrested at an Atlantic City casino earlier this week.

According to the Courier-Post, Evesham Police responded to Bernie Robbins Jewelers on Route 73 on January 10th. Store employees said a man, later identified as 29-year-old Raymond Scura of Staten Island, used a fictitious check to buy a $52,000 Rolex the day before.

Authorities determined Scura was at Ocean Resort Casino where he was arrested without incident.

The Courier-Post reports officials seized $23,300 cash from Scura, but the Rolex was not located. Police are unsure if he pawned the watch, but said it’s a possibility and that’s why the money was seized.

Scura has been charged with third degree theft by deception.
