An anonymous tip texted to Atlantic City police led to the arrest of a man wanted out of New York.
The message to Tip411 said the man would be at the Showboat Casino Hotel for a poker tournament, Sgt. Monica McMenamin said.
The tip proved true, and police arrested Omar Ghanim, 32, on Tuesday night.
Tip411, or 847411, allows people to anonymously text tips to police. A two-way conversation is possible without revealing the tipster’s identity.
