    Documents filed in the US District Court for the Eastern District of Missouri indicate Steinberg held

    Although no details have yet emerged on where and how he was arrested, it appears that Norman Steinberg, who has been associated with Gary Kaplan and the moribund BetonSports.com, is being held by Federal authorities.

    In documents filed yesterday (Tuesday) before the District Court for the district of Eastern Missouri, US Attorney Catherine Hanaway and other federal officials from the Department of Justice Organized Crime and Racketeering Section request the detention without bail of Norman Steinberg, aka Tom Miller and David Norman, apparently arrested and taken into custody regarding the United States' case against BetonSports. The case number is No. S1-4:06CR00337 CEJ (MLM)

    The detention is requested for a period of three days, presumably pending a bail hearing, and it is understoof that the application for detention was granted on grounds that the accused is a flight risk.

    Steinberg is thought to be one of the last remaining fugitives in the BetonSports case, which involves some eleven defendants on an indictment that lists a number of serious charges.

    The case started with the arrest of BoS CEO David Carruthers almost a year ago whilst he was transitting the USA on his way to Costa Rica. Carruthers remains on heavy bail and confined to a house in St. Louis, Missouri pending trial. More recently, Gray Kaplan, the founder of BoS was arrested in Dominica and extradited to the US where he is in custody awaiting trial.

    The case ruined BetOnSports, which earlier this year pleaded guilty and agreed to assist the authorities going forward. The company is headed toward liquidation as a result of having lost all of its predominently US business.
