HANOVER, Md. (AP) — Maryland State Police have charged a Virginia couple in a counterfeit poker chip scheme and they're seeking charges against two other people 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, Va., bought counterfeit chips online and they were altered to look like Maryland Live! chips. Police say the chips were thrown into a lake, but they floated and most were recovered.

Nguyen is charged with theft and conspiracy and her husband, Vuong Truong, is charged with committing a theft scheme 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.
