LAS VEGAS (AP) - A prosecutor says a Canadian businessman is
wanted in Nevada for failing to pay a $5 million gambling debt to a
Las Vegas-area casino.
Chief Deputy Clark County District Attorney Bernie Zadrowski
said Thursday that Semion Kronenfeld is being sought on felony
theft and bad check charges on a warrant issued Feb. 17 in
Henderson Justice Court.
Kronenfeld is accused of failing to make good on checks totaling
$1.7 million, $2.3 million and $1 million written to the Green
Valley Ranch Station casino last Oct. 24-26.
Zadrowski says Kronenfeld told the casino in Henderson that he
had an investment and real estate business in Toronto. Zadrowski
says Kronenfeld also spells his last name Cronenfeld.
He could not immediately be reached for comment.
