RIVERSIDE (AP) — Prosecutors say two Orange County men used stolen ATM card numbers to rack up about $25,000 in slot machine jackpots at a Southern California casino.
Investigators say 32-year-old Hung Nguyen of Stanton and 28-year-old Eric Hoang of Garden Grove used stolen Visa debit card numbers to buy gift cards at the Pechanga Resort & Casino in Temecula. The gift credits were then transferred to players cards in the name of the defendants.READ MORE: One Killed In Fiery Wreck On 60 Freeway In Hacienda Heights
