The Jakarta Globe, 24 Aug 2011 A former video surveillance officer with the Marina Bay Sands was charged on Wednesday with cheating its casino of nearly $125,000 (Rp 1.1 billion) between July 16 and Aug. 14, 2011. Court documents state that on 33 occasions, Ho Boon Keat, 28, allegedly allowed accomplices, including two officers with the Singapore Armed Forces, to be paid winnings by deceiving the pit managers that their bets were valid. Two of the accomplices — Benson Ho, 24, and Ang Chee Peng, 28 — are at large, while Bai Qipei, 24, and Toh Kaida, 28, are presently assisting police in their investigations. Ho is a driver and Bai is a delivery man. The other two alleged accomplices are officers with the Singapore Armed Forces.
