Md. police probe counterfeit poker chip scheme

HANOVER — Maryland State Police are investigating a counterfeit poker chip scheme at the Maryland Live! Casino.

WRC-TV reports that according to a search warrant, casino security officers called in police last month after finding dozens of counterfeit $100 poker chips. The court document states the chips were larger than standard chips used at the casino and at least one was a $1 chip from Charles Town Casino in West Virginia that had been painted.

Casino staff identified four people from northern Virginia as the likely source of the counterfeit chips and the warrant served last week in Fairfax County states investigators believe they made thousands of dollars over several days.

Police say no arrests have been made, but the case is under investigation.
