Whenever we read news about crime especially those involving casino robberies, we usually think that it is of a completely very serious matter. However, this one is quite an unusual story.
A man named Nickolas Kevin Van Meter has been apprehended by police for allegedly robbing the Magic Diamond Casino located in Great Falls, Montana on the eve of Monday, May 22. BUTT, the story has a plot twist.
Mr. Van Meter is accused of going into the casino on the evening of May 22, wearing a mask, threatened the cashier at knifepoint and demanded money.
An employee said there was no money in the register, and so offered him the cash from her apron instead, which consists of rolls of $1, $5, and $20 that totaled around $354. The quick-thinking employee intentionally removed the rubber bands on the rolls of cash so that the robber would find it difficult to handle.
According to the Great Falls Tribune, when the police officers spotted Van Meter, they handcuffed him and conducted a pat down. There was no sign of the knife, but they felt a lump in his pants. That was when they discovered $254 in $1, $5, and $20 bills spilling out of his butt crack!
Van Meter was arrested for misdemeanor theft and felony robbery.
According to court documents, the suspect declined to speak with the officer and said he will take the incident to trial.
