Casino employee made her own change

William Ferchland, Tahoe Daily Tribune

A Horizon Casino Resort employee was arrested Thursday for allegedly embezzling thousands of dollars from two arcade games, authorities reported.

Mary Marie Aney, 19, from South Lake Tahoe, was employed as arcade change person for four months at the casino, a Douglas County sheriff’s report stated.

During a four-month span, Aney would take money from two arcade games, “Big Hall” and “Cyclone” and give the change bag to her boyfriend so he could exchange the quarters for dollar bills, the report stated. The crime was caught by video surveillance.

Through interrogation, Aney told officers she began taking money a few days after starting her job sometime in March. For four days a week she would take at least $100 and estimated the total amount at $6,400, the report stated.

Aney was charged with felony embezzlement and remains in Douglas County jail at $10,000 bail.

Aney’s boyfriend, 22-year-old Christopher Voskamp, was arrested for burglary. Deputies learned he was on parole for drug-related offenses and property crimes. He remains in Douglas County jail at $25,000 and no bail for a fugitive warrant.
