A Newfield, New York man has been arrested for allegedly robbing a cashier at the Turning Stone Casino on Tuesday night.

State Police say 30-year old Jacob Walsh went up to the cashier, told her he had a weapon and ordered her to fill his backpack with money.

Walsh fled on foot and was taken into custody without incident a short time later in a wooded area near Exit 33 of the Thruway.

He was charged with first-degree robbery.

The investigation is continuing.
