A Brooklyn man is accused of selling drugs inside Jack Casino in downtown Cleveland. Desmond Smith, 27, is charged with fourth-degree drug trafficking in the incident that was captured on casino surveillance at about 5 a.m. Friday, court and police records say.
His bond was set at $10,000 during his Monday arraignment at Cleveland Municipal Court, where his case was bound over to a Cuyahoga County grand jury. Smith’s next court appearance is slated for Friday.
Casino surveillance workers contacted a Cleveland police officer working secondary employment at Jack Casino after they saw Smith making a “hand-to-hand drug transaction” inside the building, according to a Cleveland police report.
