Posted: Updated:

Four people believed to be part of a group that conspired to use counterfeit chips at coast casinos were arrested this week.

Officials with the Mississippi Gaming Commission tell WLOX News Jolanda Michelle Hart, 41, was their first arrest in the investigation. Hart allegedly tried to cash in counterfeit chips at Margaritaville Casino in Biloxi.

Then Thursday, agents arrested Larry Lee Cronk, 36, of D'Iberville; Chase Tyler Kennedy, 26, of Gulfport; and Anjali Jones, 60, of Gulfport.

Hart is charged with six counts of possession of counterfeit chips.

Cronk and Kennedy are charged with possession of counterfeit chips and one count each of conspiracy to violate the state's gaming control act. Jones is charged with one count of conspiracy to violate the gaming control act.
