The Eastern Uusimaa police are investigating a gross theft in which an employee of a company located in Vantaa is suspected of stealing the company’s assets worth approximately EUR 150,000. One of the largest companies is Veikkaus Oy. IS asked Veikkaus Oy whether they had been charged with the crime.

Is it Veikkaus Oy?

Yes it is true that this is Veikkaus Oy, Velipekka Nummikoski, Executive Vice President, tells Ilta-Sanomat.

Mr. Nummikoski will not go into further detail at this stage.

The police will report it, he says.

According to the latest information, the young man had fled to Tallinn. It will be interesting to see how soon this young man gets caught. € 150,000 is not far off. It remains to be seen whether Veikkaus will change its practices after this incident. What kind of judgment will the young man receive? As it is Veikkaus, the 19-year-old will probably receive a very harsh sentence. Due to the amount of money seized, this is already a gross theft, with a maximum sentence of four years in prison.
