A police officer was arrested for allegedly cheating at blackjack with the help of a dealer at the Stratosphere casino in Las Vegas, authorities said.

Edgar Zermeno, 33, made about $1,000 during two nights of gambling earlier this month, said Keith Copher, chief of enforcement for the Nevada Gaming Control Board.

The officer allegedly was seen cheating on May 5 and May 6 by pit bosses and security officers who watched him on surveillance cameras, Copher said.

"The dealer was exposing his hole card to him" and paying even when Zermeno had a losing hand, Copher alleged.
