SOUTH ST. LOUIS COUNTY (KMOV.com) -

Authorities are looking for a Jefferson County couple accused of exploiting a glitch in the payout system at River City Casino.

Eileen Sheldon, 60, and her husband Daniel Sheldon, 61, are charged with felony stealing.

The two are accused of stealing $300,000. Police believe they used a My Choice Account Loyalty Card to access winnings they should have not received.

Authorities believe a system error allowed them to download unearned winnings with the cards.

Court documents say surveillance cameras show the two getting money from the cards on different occasions.
