Pulling your socks up in the workplace is something many people do, but one used them to hide casino chips in before taking the money home each night.
Wayne Wagner, a 38-year-old croupier at the Grosvenor Victoria Casino, would hand the sock
-based chips to an accomplice who would cash in his so-called winnings, with the pair splitting them down the middle.
Had it not been for one of the many eagle-eyed bosses at the upper-class betting palace, then Mr Wagner's six-year-old legwear
habit would have likely continued.
Last October, the man was jailed for 15 months and ordered to pay £36,000 after admitting the theft of £69,000, though Grosvenor has served a writ on his shoulders now, naming him as responsible for the loss of £250,000 to £350,000.
The venue where the dangerous dealings took place is found on Edgware Road, providing live sports, poker rooms and restaurants inside.
