Money falls off armored truck after cash pick-up

Money Falls Off Armored Truck After Cash Pick-Up

More bad news for the doomed Revel Casino Hotel in Atlantic City. More than $20,000 has gone missing after falling off the roof of an armored truck that had picked up cash from the soon-to-be-closed resort.

Surveillance footage confirms a Garda World armored vehicle arrived at revel the morning of August 6h for a cash pickup, but the truck pulled away with the bag of money sitting on the roof. The bag can be seen in surveillance footage from subsequent pick-ups, so it's unclear exactly when the cash fell off the garda truck.

A spokesman for Garda released a statement saying, "We are cooperating with the authorities in investigating this incident and cannot provide any additional details."

The casino has not released a statement.


This is just the latest blow to Revel, the $2.4B casino and hotel announced earlier this month that they would be closing their doors September 2nd after just two years because of a number of financial issues. They hope that by closing, their ability to find a buyer for the property will improve.

What idiot wrote this story? The armored car company signed for the money and they are going to have to make good, this has nothing to do with the Revel or any ther casino. Nothing but a bull **** headline again, thanks AOL

How in the heck does a bag of money get on the roof to begin with? I thought they walked it inside.

Not bad news for the Revel. It's bad news for armored car company and it's insurance company.

am in total agreement. AC can only sustain at best 6 Casinos. 3 on Boardwalk and 3 in Marina district. If they wish to continue and flourish they must support local enterprises.

I remember a few years back the casino workers striking against the casinos, now several are closing most people would just be happy to have a job now they will have a new appreciation for a job. Still it is too bad.

Had a woman pullup beside me in the next lane at a red light with a case of pop on her roof. i told her about it and she couldn't thank me enough. Sheset it there to unlock her car and forgot it was there. Thishowever is a little rediculous! ; )
