Salinas Casino Employee Steals Over $90K
Crime and casinos go hand in hand. Criminals have been known for stalking jackpot winners and going after them. But sometimes crime can come from within like in one Salinas Casino.
The Bankers Casino recently had an employee walk into the building and steal over $90,000 in cash. The man was arrested by the police, but the investigation is still ongoing as officers suspect he had help in the matter. Luckily, the perpetrator was caught and the money is safe. But how did he do it?
The Man Walked in and Walked Out With the Money
Jesus Arellano was a regular casino employee working at the Bankers Casino in Salinas. There’s no telling why one day he got greedy and decided to rob the place. Luckily, he didn’t put anyone in danger and picked his time carefully.
He walked in with a backpack and got a bunch of money. On the way out, he bought some things from the casino and put the rest of the cash in his backpack. All this was found out by the police and they arrested a suspect. They found $65,000 in Arellano’s home. The money reported stolen is said to be over $90,000.
The police worked together with casino officials to find the suspect. Because of the leisurely way, Arellano stole the money the police suspects he had some help. In other words, he knew where to look, but he didn’t take it carefully. Sure no one was hurt, but he didn’t exactly hide the money he stole.
That’s why there’s an ongoing investigation against Jesus. He is now awaiting trial for his crimes. The police are actively looking for any potential accomplices to Arellano. The main thing about this incident is that the suspect is caught and most of the money is safe.
If there is an accomplice, then that person will be eventually caught too. Playing it fair is the way to go regardless if you’re a casino player or employee. This goes for land-based and online casinos, as both guarantee fair play.
