MARTINSBURG, W.Va. (AP) -- Two men from North Carolina and New York have pleaded guilty to using counterfeit credit cards to obtain thousands of dollars in cash advances at a West Virginia casino. 

Thirty-eight-year-old Carlo Gause of Wilmington, N.C., and 38-year-old Dwayne Fleming of Brooklyn, N.Y., each pleaded guilty Wednesday to use of a counterfeit access device before a federal magistrate in Martinsburg. 

U.S. Attorney William J. Ihlenfeld said Thursday that Gause agreed as part of a plea deal to pay $155,300 in restitution to Hollywood Casino at Charles Town Races. Fleming agreed to pay $34,000 in restitution. 

The incidents occurred in 2010. 

Each defendant faces up to 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine. They remain in custody pending sentencing.
