HKD$48 million worth of casino chips are stolen from Wynn Macau

At approximately 7.00am on Tuesday the 16th of January, 49-year-old debt-ridden Wynn Macau VIP gambling club croupier Lei, allegedly told a co-worker to be quiet before stuffing HKD$47.89 million worth of casino chips in a black bag and fleeing the casino on a motorbike. The motorbike and Lei’s casino uniform were later found abandoned in a parking lot. On Thursday the 18th of January, police managed to locate Lei, and Lei’s 70-year-old uncle Ho (whom police suspect may be Leis’ accomplice) at a park in Taipa where both men were arrested. Despite the arrest, police have only managed to recover HKD20k of the HKD47.89 million stolen. Interestingly enough, Wynn casino chips can only be exchanged for cash in Wynn‘s casino, so authorities will most likely be keeping a close eye on persons trying to cash in large amounts of casino chips following this robbery.
