Cincinnati, Ohio – A Kentucky man is accused of stealing casino chips from a Poker player at the Horseshoe Cincinnati Casino

Willians Calipo, 52, of Union, Kentucky was arrested on Saturday the 16th of January at the Horseshoe Cincinnati Casino after being accused of stealing casino chips from another person. According to Cincinnati police, Calipo dropped his jacket several times near the chair of a gamer, who was sitting at a Poker table. The victim had just purchased $1,000 worth of casino chips, and had placed $500 in chips on the Poker table, and the other $500 in chips under his chair. A few minutes later, the victim realized that the casino chips under his chair were missing and reported them to the casino. Surveillance video showed why Calipo repeatedly dropped his jacket on the floor next the victim’s chair. Calipo was stopped by gaming agents when he tried to re-enter the casino a few hours later. Calipo then removed the $500 in chips from his pocket and said that he just found them on the floor and was trying to return them to the owner. Calipo was arraigned on Tuesday the 19th of January on a casino cheat charge, before being released on $1,250 bond.
