San Fernando couple charged after rigging casino machine

A 39-year-old man and his 33-year-old common law wife are expected to appear before a San Fernando Magistrate on allegations of fraud and larceny.

The two were held on Friday after a team of officers from the San Fernando CID, led by Inspector Gajadhar, conducted inquiries.

It was alleged that between January and August of this year, the couple were manipulating a roulette machine in a casino in San Fernando, to the effect that they received over $150,000 over the seven month period.

The officers obtained CCTV footage which aided them in their inquiries, and led to the charges being laid against the couple.
