Oooops: Casino Employees Busted Stealing 100k Chip
Note to self: don't steal gaming chips of extremely high denominations, buy jewelery and other crap, and expect to get away with it.
From the Macau Daily Times:
Two casino employees who allegedly stole a HK$100,000 gaming chip and then cashed it in and shared the money, were arrested by the Judiciary Police (PJ) on Tuesday. The two 24-year-old suspects worked in different casinos and were local residents.
According to spokesperson Chan Kin Hong, a casino in Taipa filed a report to police on Tuesday that they suspected one of their staff members had stolen gaming chips during work.
After looking at records of the surveillance camera, police suspected a man surnamed Leong who had begun to work in the accounting department only three days ago. The suspect then admitted to police he had stolen the HK$100,000 gaming chip from the department office last Friday and then passed it on to his croupier friend from another casino in order to cash in the money.
Hrm.... casino in Taipa? Casino Taipa? No way, that place is a shoebox. Greek Mythology? Possibly, they are partially owned by AMAX and have VIP play that would warrant such chip denominations. Crown? Possibly, but they probably have RFID sensors in their chips. MJC? Possibly. Casino Marina? Nah.
Is this what they mean by "rolling out the door chip volume?"
