A Harrington Casino employee was arrested Jan. 23 after an investigation revealed that he allegedly stole $2,500 in chips over a period of three weeks.
The employee, 39-year-old George Casterline of Clayton, was charged with five misdemeanor counts of theft under $1,500.
Casterline was arrested by Delaware State Troopers assigned to the Delaware Division of Gaming Enforcement, assisted by Harrington Raceway and Casino Surveillance and Security Departments. An investigation revealed that Casterline was working a craps table as a dealer when he allegedly removed purple chips, valued at $500 each, for a total of $2,500, according to Department of Safety and Homeland Security Gaming Enforcement Division spokeswoman Kimberly Chandler.
A search warrant later executed at Casterline’s residence in Windsong Farms in Clayton revealed additional chips.
Casterline was issued a $5,000 unsecured bond with a no contact order with all three casino entities.
