YORKTOWN, N.Y. (CBSNewYork) — The fix was in at a synagogue in Westchester County, where officials say a bingo caller was arrested on charges he changed the outcomes of multiple bingo games.

71-year-old Neil Simon Gross is accused of manipulating the results of the weekly contests held at the Yorktown Jewish Center.

After an investigation by police and the state gaming commission, Gross was charged with gaming fraud.

He surrendered to police last Thursday and is due in court next month.

The Yorktown Jewish Center was founded in 1952 by a group of town residents who were “seeking to build a Jewish community not only for themselves and their children, but for those who would move to the Lower Hudson Valley in the future,” according to the synagogue’s website.
