Man's Luck Runs Out After Blackjack Win

ALTOONA, PA -- A man accused of dealing drugs had his luck run out when he won $2,500 playing blackjack at a casino near Philadelphia.

Altoona police say Mateen Johnson, 34, was arrested Saturday because he had to produce identification to cash out his winnings at Philadelphia Park Racetrack & Casino in Bucks County. Casino officials learned Johnson was wanted for drug offenses in Altoona and called authorities.

The Altoona Mirror reports Tuesday that Johnson told police he expected to be arrested soon and was trying to win enough at blackjack to make bail.

Online court records don't list an attorney for Johnson, who was wanted on separate drug delivery charges filed last year.

Johnson remained in the Blair County Prison on Monday.

I know he was in trouble, but he should be able to keep his winnings.

Johnson’s $2,500 winnings were checked in at the jail and await him when he gets out

Re: Man's Luck Runs Out After Blackjack Win

The money used to place the original bets were proceeds of crime, this is why he should not be allowed to keep the winnings.

Of course it's blood money - have you any idea how many people die because of drug wars? Mexico is the worst, with tens of thousands dying every year.

If you want to get REALLY technical... 90% of Heroin in the UK comes from Taliban poppy fields in Afghanistan. Therefore, British Skagheads are funding the Taliban, so they can buy guns to kill British soldiers.

To quote my local police force: "Drug dealers deal in misery and death."
