    Delaware authorities have charged a Dover Downs Casino slots technician and his wife with stealing more than $15,000 from the casino.

    Department of Safety and Homeland Security spokeswoman Kimberly Chandler said Wednesday that casino security recently uncovered a scheme where 46-year-old James Crider used his position to collect paper tickets that can be redeemed for cash from the machines and gave them to his 41-year-old wife, Brenda, to cash. Chandler says the thefts, which began in March 2013, totaled $15,543.

    The couple was arrested last week and charged with two counts of felony theft exceeding $1,500 and second-degree conspiracy. James Crider is also charged with two counts of identity theft and third-degree burglary.
