A 32-year-old man was arrested Sunday after authorities say he tried to steal a woman's slot machine ticket at the Seminole Casino Immoklaee.

Luis Juan Francisco, of the 100 block of Seventh Street South, Immokalee, is facing a charge of attempted grand theft.

Just before 10 p.m., the victim was playing a slot machine at the casino when she printed out her winnings ticket. Francisco approached her and attempted to grab her ticket from the machine while she was still sitting in front of it, according to an arrest report.

The value of the ticket was redacted from the arrest report. The Collier County Sheriff's Office reports it was worth between $300 and $1,000.

The victim pushed Francisco away from her and contacted security, reports said. Deputies were called to the casino, where they located and arrested Francisco.
