An arrest warrant has been issued for Bryan Sagbigsal, the former employee of “Hustler Casino Live”, who was seen on casino security video stealing $15,000 in chips from the stack of Robbi Jade Lew. Under California law, Sagbigsal could be sentenced to up to three years in prison and up to $10,000 in fines.
The Los Angeles County district attorney’s office has issued an arrest warrant for Bryan Sagbigsal, the former employee of Hustler Casino Live who was seen on casino security video stealing $15,000 in chips from the stack of Robbi Jade Lew.
The district attorney’s office has not issued a statement regarding the Sagbigsal matter. The grand theft label applies to cases where the cash amount or value of the stolen items exceeds $950, and it can become a felony theft matter if the value exceeds $5,000. If Sagbigsal is found guilty, he could face a maximum of three years in prison and up to a $10,000 fine under California law. The investigation was referred to the L.A. County prosecutors after a Gardena police detective initially interviewed Lew about the theft, according to Chang.
Sagbigsal is said to be going to turn himself in
There is an open question in this matter about Sagbigsal’s current location. In late October, the Gardena police conducted a day-long search for Sagbigsal, but did not find him. The search included a stop at the house of Sagbigsal’s former girlfriend’s parents, in Long Beach, but police learned he had been kicked out two weeks earlier after a L.A. Times news team confronted him.
It is not clear whether an actual arrest warrant had been issued at that time, or whether Sagbigsal had been arrested in connection with the Gardena police department search. Sagbigsal didn’t answer calls from Gardena police at that time, according to Chang’s report.
Sagbigsal was in contact with at least one former co-worker of his, Patrick Curran, who in turn reported to PokerNews that he expected the accused thief to eventually turn himself in to authorities. Sagbigsal did not follow through on that expectation six weeks later.
