Woman caught stealing poker chips

The odds were not in a local woman’s favor as she was arrested last Friday, April 11, for cashing in stolen poker chips valued at $3,500.

The victim was playing poker at Sam’s Town Casino on March 21 when several Eldorado chips fell from his jacket pocket. Seconds later, 45-year-old Delma Fuggins was seen crawling under the victim’s chair to pick up the four chips.

Later, when the victim finished his game and stood up, he found one of the chips in his seat and alerted security that the other chips were missing.

Caddo Sheriff’s Detective Andy Scoggins investigated the case and said that Fuggins tried to cash in the chips minutes later at Sam’s

Town but could not do so because they were from another casino. Fuggins then went to Eldorado Casino and cashed them in.

Scoggins obtained a warrant for Fuggins’s arrest on a theft charge. She was arrested by the Caddo Sheriff’s Warrants Unit last Friday morning at her residence on Post Oak Drive in Shreveport.

She was booked into the Caddo Correctional Center.
