An odd-job worker had placed his plastic bag containing $19,000 in cash on the chair next to him while playing a jackpot machine in the Marina Bay Sands casino.

Mr Muhammad Mustaqim Mohd Shaffir, 28, then walked away without the bag at 9.15am on Aug 1 this year. Within minutes, a man took it away.

On Monday, Mohamad Salleh Din, 53, a Malaysian businessman, was jailed for four months for misappropriating the money.

A district court heard that Muhammad Mustaqim, a Singaporean, had informed casino staff members when found that his money had gone missing.
