A 46-year-old man who prosecutors said stole a safe from a casino was charged on Wednesday.

Anthony Scott was served with a complaint charging him with felony burglary and misdemeanor counts of criminal mischief and possession of burglary tools.

Charging documents allege that on Monday Scott burglarized Montana Jacks Restaurant and Casino, 502 Hanson Drive, where he stole a safe and other items, cut the wires to the business’s alarm system and stole the recorder for a video surveillance system.

After he became a suspect in the case, police made contact with him and found tools that could be used in a burglary and recovered the stolen safe, court records state.

Judge Hernandez set bond at $20,000 and ordered Scott to appear for arraignment on May 2.
