Magic Valley Residents Arrested At Nevada Casino

Efforts by three southern Idaho residents to cash in $800 worth of coins at Cactus Pete’s Casino in Jackpot, Nevada were thwarted earlier this week by a deputy sheriff and wary employees.  The three were identified as 29 year old Robert Troglia of Hailey; 23 year old Michael Faulkner of Bliss and 46 year old Penny Stalions of Kimberly. An Elko County Deputy Sheriff entered the Casino and was told by employees that the three were attempting to cash in the coins but would not say where they got them.  The deputy saw  Troglia make a cellphone call about the same time casino staff said that a caller claimed a bomb was on the gaming floor and was set to go off in just a few minutes.  The deputy questioned Troglia, and he admitted to the bomb threat being part of a ruse to allow the three to slip away.  Faulkner had also tried to escape custody, but was tracked by a sheriff’s K-9.  All three were taken into custody and transported to the Elko County Jail and charged with several crimes including making a bomb threat, conspiracy to commit a crime and aiding and abetting as well as several other charges.
