Poker Chips Worth Thousands Of Pounds Stolen By Croupier

Tags: Cromwell Mint Casino, Croupier.
Posted on 12 January 2016 by "T".

After several months of being put under surveillance, a croupier working at the Cromwell Mint Casino in London has been arrested for thievery when he was caught red-handed stealing poker chips worth thousands of pounds.

The croupier possessed a secret tube hidden in his pocket, with which he used to drop the chips, leading down to his socks. After the dirty deed, he passed them to a female accomplice during his break. Another accomplice will then pretend to be a casino winner and cash in the chips.

There is still no information revealed to the public regarding the exact sum of money that this man managed to steal from the London-based casino; however, it has been reported by the police that they found around £12,000 in cash when they searched the croupier's residence.

Bosses of the London casino began to suspect that their Romanian employee was stealing gaming chips while he was working, and so they decided to keep a close eye on him. Last month, once they have nearly deduced his scheme, they ordered that he be searched right before he gets the chance to meet his female accomplice (described as an "Eastern European beauty") on a fire escape while he was on his cigarette break.

"The chips literally fell out of him as he stood outside in the street. He even had some secreted in his socks," a casino source stated.

The investigators believe that another friend of the croupier, posing as a casino winner, visited the establishment with the intent to cash in the stolen poker chips.

Despite this, the dishonest croupier was only cautioned by the police, and no charges were made against him. Of course, the casino fired him right on the spot.
According to a leaked information, the now ex-croupier was earning about £30,000 annually, plus tips.
This incident actually attracted a lot of attention because it is quite a rare occurrence for casino employees to attempt to steal chips at their place of work since there are numerous surveillance cameras watching their every move.

Cromwell Mint Casino is a subsidiary of the Genting Casinos UK group, which also owns Crockfords in Mayfair, the casino that's reported to have withheld almost £8 million of Phil Ivey's winnings right after they accused him of cheating by using a technique called "edge sorting" at the game punto-banco.

so let me get this straight- he was caught with evidence (chips falling form his a55), police found 12k+ in his house, camera's caught the act... and he only got warned by police? like "please don't do this again, or we will have to warn you once more..." i have a clue that police done this only because croupier's girlfriend- the "eastern european beauty" sucked salami's for the whole department...

Not a bad idea by the croupier and his gang. Could make it straight to Hollywood someday. Difficult to feel sorry for the casino. If you try to get the cheapest workforce possible, there is always a danger that stunts like this happen.

No, they did not found the third member - the one who cashed out all the chips - so there was not enough evidence that he benefitted from the 'crime' since they catched him just one - last - time. Besides 30k plus tips in the UK for an entry level job (this job does not require a lot of expertise nor experience, everybody could do it - even the math part - with a couple weeks of training) is not that bad to make him 2 do this.

well yeah, what you say does make sense, but that doesn't mean that the eastern european beauty didn't offer free blowjobs for the whole department does it?

I like this ending a lot just like in the movies. the hero scams the house and gets away with it. Normally in real life you get screwed over many times especially if you are a low level crook. By the way pochui is just sore that he got caught/could not pull off a big score and that he has to grind every day to survive. Grow a pair pochui, even you can pull off a big scam. Believe in yourself.
