SINGAPORE : An 18-year-old Malaysian was fined S$3,000 for stealing S$7,400 worth of items from the Marina Bay Sands casino in May.

Tey Chin Wei, who was working in Singapore as a hairstylist, went to the casino to gamble on the afternoon of May 1.

He lost almost all the money he had brought with him.

At 2.15am the next day, when he was at the roulette section, he noticed a woman placing her branded handbag behind her on the seat of her chair.

Tey decided to steal it.

He walked to the male toilet with the handbag and took S$600 cash, S$600 worth of gambling chips and an iPhone worth S$1,200 from it.

Tey left the S$5,000 handbag in the toilet.

He was stopped by a security officer who checked on his identification and age when he returned to the casino.

Tey was escorted out of the casino when it was found out that he was underaged.

That is when the woman noticed her missing handbag and reported it to the casino.

Tey was arrested later that day. - CNA/ms
