Casino worker charged with embezzling $1,000

BILOXI, Miss. (AP) - Biloxi police say a casino worker has been charged with embezzlement for pocketing payments for food services and not turning the money in.

The Sun Herald reports that 22-year-old Amanda Ables of Biloxi was arrested Saturday.

To cover the loss, Sgt. Donnie G. Dobbs says Ables accessed unsuspecting Players Club card accounts and used individual Player Club points to generate comps. Dobbs says this made it appear that the account holder had received the service when they had not.

Dobbs says the estimated loss to the casino was $1,075.
