Siblings jailed 6 months for misappropriating casino chips


A pair of Filipino siblings were each jailed for six months on Friday over the criminal breach of trust of $21,663 worth of casino chips from Resorts World Sentosa (RWS) casino.

Lim Mary Jane Dometita, 44, then a dealer, had admitted to misappropriating the cash chips at the casino in Sentosa Gateway between May 3 and 31 this year.

Her brother, Menito Jr Costes Dometita, 40, who works in the IT industry, pleaded guilty to conspiring with her last November by causing her to misappropriate the chips.

A district court heard that the offence came to light in May when Mary Jane was said to have overpaid a patron when changing chips.
