A woman who stole $25,000 from a gambler in his hotel room was fined $10,000 on Thursday.
Yee Bee Ang, 31, unemployed, admitted to theft of 25 pieces of $1,000 notes from Mr Sri Guritno, 48, an Indonesian, in his room at Marina Bay Sands Hotel Tower 1 on Sept 13 last year.
A district court heard that the victim was playing alone at the baccarat machine at MBS casino around midnight on Sept 12 when Yee sat next to him and starting chatting. They later exchanged contact details.
The next day before 7am, Yee called and said she was tired after playing games and wanted to rest in his room. He agreed.
