Sticky Fingers Trio Jailed After Chip Theft

Sticky Fingers Trio Jailed After Chip Theft

When you refer to someone as a person with sticky fingers, you’re referring to a thief. Casinos are no strangers to thieves and they take extra precautions by using CCTV footage, security, and alert patrons.

Marina Bay Sands Casino in Singapore recently had a trio with sticky fingers stealing chips. The trio was successful to get $1,182 in chips before getting caught by a patron. All of them are arrested and have been given sentences for their deeds. The sticky trio will stick it out in jail.

Marina Bay Sands Players Used Glue to Steal Chips

When it comes to winning, casino players have been known to use various strategies to beat the house. Sometimes these strategies work, and other times they don’t, but that doesn’t stop them from trying again to improve their winning strategy.

Some people even go as far as doing something illegal. One Chinese national decided on visiting the Marina Bay Sands Casino in Singapore. He was going to sustain losses so he decided to craft a sticky plan to enlarge his budget. Huang Chunsheng decided on gluing his fingers and grabbing some chips from nearby players. He added 2 friends to the task and they were pretty successful.

They went for players that had big piles of chips because they wouldn’t notice a few missing chips. They spread out and their operation got them $1,182 in chips before they were caught. Each sticky bandit would keep the number of chips they stole.

But one patron had a keen eye and caught Huang red-handed. The other two fled the scene, but Huang couldn’t go anywhere as the patron was holding him. The police didn’t take long to arrive on the scene and arrest him. The accomplices were found soon after and all of them got a sentence between seven and ten months.

These casino players were quite crafty when it came to their plan, but they didn’t account for the keen-eyed patron who stopped their operation. It’s a good idea to have a strategy, but it should be a legal one.

Conclusion

Three Chinese casino players decided on visiting the Marina Bay Sands Casino in Singapore and steal some chips. They glued their fingers and went after successful players with big chips to get their hands full. But their plan was unsuccessful as they got caught and jailed.
