Most of the time when chips go missing inside of a casino, police and casino management can check video and find the culprit. That has not been the case in one situation at the Crown Casino.
A missing $100,000 chip was reported back in January of 2006. Since then, the casino and police have had no luck finding the person that stole the chip. It is guessed that it was an employee who got away with the chip.
The chip was taken from one of the most highly secured places in the casino, making it almost more unbelievable that the crook could have gotten away without being caught.
“The existing cameras didn’t capture anything. A couple of the cameras passed over the floor but they didn’t show anything,” said a source, to the Sunday Herald Sun.
The police were not called on to the case immediately. The casino first tried to solve the crime on their own. When they had no success, they then put in a complaint to the police.
While it was amazing that the thief was able to get away without getting caught, the casino and police do not feel that they have struck again. They claim the chip stolen was an isolated incident.
