According to gaming regulators, a man on Nevada’s so-called “black book,” a list of people banned from the state’s gaming establishments, was arrested after being spotted inside a Las Vegas Strip casino on Monday.

Tasia McDonald Musa, 40, was arrested around midnight Monday by Las Vegas Metropolitan Police after security at the Paris Las Vegas recognized him on the casino floor, according to a press release from the Nevada Gaming Control Board.

Musa was added to the List of Excluded Persons in 2015 “for various convictions of crimes of moral turpitude,” according to the Control Board.

According to the ruling that put him on the excluded list, he had seven casino-related convictions for crimes such as grand larceny. According to a Las Vegas Metropolitan Police arrest report, Musa is a “prolific chip thief” who has targeted multiple casinos over the years.

According to the Control Board, Musa fled the casino when security attempted to apprehend him. Officers on regular patrol saw him crossing the street and immediately arrested him in front of the Bellagio fountains after a short foot chase.

According to the arrest report, Musa admitted to police that he is aware he is not permitted to enter any Nevada casino but asked to be released with a warning.

He was arrested on suspicion of unlawful entry by a person on a list of excluded persons, a gross misdemeanor.

“The Board recognizes the security staff of the Paris Hotel & Casino and thanks the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department for their diligence in this matter, and for its continued partnership with the Board to ensure the safety of Nevada’s residents and its guests,” said James Taylor, chief of the board’s enforcement division.
