The theft was reported on July 16, and Sease’s name was listed on the National Crime Information Center database, Pace said.

“The business audit shows there may have been more than one incident of when the cash had been taken,” said Pace, adding the time period in which the money was taken is unclear.

Sease was arrested at 5 p.m. Thursday by agents from the Mississippi Gaming Commission and security officers at a Vicksburg casino, Pace said.

Sease was being held without bond pending an initial appearance in court.
