Resorts World opened, police to get busy

With the first of the two Integrated Resorts, Resorts World Sentosa, opened barely a few days, our home team is already seeing more work on their plates...

Indonesian who lost all in casino at Resorts World Sentosa, stole at airport

An Indonesian man who lost all the S$1,000 he had with him at the Resorts World Sentosa casino was jailed for four weeks after pleading guilty to stealing a handphone from an undergraduate at Changi Airport.

As he lost all his money gambling at the casino on Monday, the second day of its opening, he decided to steal from passengers at Changi Airport.

Overstayers and passport scammers

The casino has been open for less than 72 hours and already several Singaporeans and permanent residents have tried to get in without paying the $100 levy, others who have overstayed their 24-hour entitlement and a pair of foreigners even tried to use their friends passports to get in.

Five locals were also caught trying to enter the casino without paying the levy - they were fined $1,000 each.

And on Monday, two foreigners were arrested for allegedly using their friends' passports to enter the casino, police told MediaCorp. The duo, believed to be Mongolians, were arrested on Monday evening by security officers.

The pair's friends, who were already inside the gaming hall, had allegedly managed to slip them their passports after clearing the security checks.

And meanwhile, loan sharks companies all over the country are requesting their business development managers to come out with the latest business opportunities and income forecast. Quick.
