SINGAPORE: A croupier at Marina Bay Sands (MBS) casino and her two accomplices will be charged in court on Saturday with conspiracy to commit criminal breach of trust.

Police said the 47—year—old Filipino croupier was arrested on November 29 after the casino operator reported that one of its croupiers was overpaying her accomplices at a gaming table.

The croupier’s boyfriend, 46, and her daughter, 23, were also arrested.

Police believe the three suspects had cheated the casino of about S$50,000. They seized S$16,917 and about 1,000 Malaysian ringgit, as well as S$6,623.50 worth of casino chips.

If convicted, each may be sentenced to jail of up to 15 years and fined.
