For the dealer to be arrested on the floor may be a message, and such tactics have been used for the delivery of that message.



Apparently, Target also arranges for employees to be arrested at the store to discourage co-workers from shoplifting. Handcuffed employees have to walk "the walk of shame".

Hopefully the casinos are a bit more competent than Target security. From the article: "It turned out that the managers had confused Kellner for another employee with a similar name who was suspected of stealing, according to Kellner. "I never even got an apology," he said.

It's finally happened. I've seen the word
'lose' written as loose so many times in
the last 15 years that I actually paused
and wondered if loose was the proper
spelling. Sigh..



now that's funny....and so true.

A scam like this will probably be successful if a dealer does it once or twice when the floor is busy. But if you do it over and over and over to the tune of 80k, you're 100% guaranteed to eventually get caught. And the security camera evidence makes it easy to prosecute. I'm shocked that this isn't obvious to every employee of every casino on planet.

You can say that, but why didn't they get caught at 30k 40k 50k 60k 70k?

Don't for a minute think the real number is 80k. That's all they have record for.

Like I said earlier. The casino knew that this was going on well before they busted him, they just wanted to gather more evidence and see if any other employees were involved.
