Counterfeit Chip Cheat Scam Hits Indiana Poker Casino!
Derrick Watts, 39, of Fort Wayne, Indiana got bagged for running a fake chip-cashing scam at the Parnell Poker Palace and Casino. Apparently Watts had lots of success at the relatively small poker palace before getting caught, taking the casino for close to twenty grand over a two month period. He had no insider help from casino employees, which has been a rarity in recent cheating scams, and the police say he fabricated the fake chips himself. Well, I guess he'll soon be fabricating something else in Indiana State Prison, maybe license plates.
