Beware floating poker chips, would-be criminals.
Maryland State Police have charged a couple from Annandale, Va., in a counterfeit poker chip scheme and they're seeking charges against two other gamblers fiddling with chips in a separate case.
Maryland Live! Casino security contacted police last month with descriptions of four people they believe passed counterfeit chips.
Police say Rosa Nguyen of Annandale bought counterfeit chips online and they were altered to look like Maryland Live! chips. Police say those chips were thrown into a lake, but they floated to the top and most were recovered.
Nguyen and her husband have been charged with theft and conspiracy.
Police say they are also seeking charges against another Northern Virginia couple, who altered $1 chips from a West Virginia casino to look like $100 Maryland Live! chips.
