Minor pleads to trying to cash in on casino win

F.T. Norton

CARSON CITY – A 20-year-old Fallon man pleaded guilty in District Court on Tuesday to hitting a jackpot at a local casino then trying to cash in on the win.

According to court records, Kyle Wayne McClelland, a mechanic, hit a $1,750 jackpot on a Keno machine at the Slotworld Casino on Highway 50 East on June 6. When he attempted to collect his winnings he told casino employees he did not have identification. Employees told him to come back when he did. On June 10, McClelland returned to Slotworld with a Nevada driver’s license which showed his age as 21. The shift manager determined the identification was altered and called police.

He was originally arrested on suspicion of felony obtaining money under false pretenses and misdemeanor use of false ID. He pleaded to a charge of attempted theft. McClelland faces up to a year in jail and a $2,000 fine when sentenced Sept. 26.
