Cheaters

I'd like to know how some of you handle cheaters in your games. I have such a person in a game I run, and I've seen them do it. I've watched them do that "snatch-and-grab" before anyone can tell what was rolled, and declare it a natural 20 or similar. I've even seen them more blatently roll, look up to see if anyone was looking (and not notice me watching surreptitiously), then declare some total not even similar to the dice result. How do you call them on it without embarrassing them? I'd ignore it, except it means this person is much more powerful than the fickle finger of fate normally allows, which means encounters have to be beefed up, etc.

I'd like some advice from more experienced GMs.
