Thief Steals $500K From Armoured Van Outside Detroit Casino

Tags: Detroit, Greektown Casino.
Posted on 09 December 2015 by "T".

A thief cleverly disguised himself as a guard and has apparently managed to steal around $500,000 worth of cash from an armoured van which is parked just outside Greektown Casino in Detroit. The thief is still currently in hiding as the police evaluate the odd crime.

According to a report, the employee (of the armoured security company Loomis) who is the driver of the van, allowed the thief to enter the armoured van and walk away without the suspect ever having to brandish a weapon or hop inside a getaway vehicle.

The driver of the van was simply duped as he believed that since the thief was wearing a guard's uniform similar to what he's wearing, he mistook him for a coworker. There were no threats made, no weapons drawn out, and no shots were fired.

What makes the situation even stranger is that the armoured van that was carrying the bags of stolen cash was not even there to pick up or drop off at the Greektown Casino nearby. The robbery simply just happened outside the casino, and the casino said they will help the police to investigate the incident.
It is not yet clear how the thief knew that there was cash inside the van.

At this time, the case has been handed over to the FBI, and the Greektown Casino employees are assisting them by reviewing the recorded footages of the heist captured by the venue's several CCTV cameras.

LOL. First is kinda phenomenal that a town so disfunctional, bankrupt and chaotic like Detroit is nowadays still has working casino(s), second a robbery which has the traits of an inside job written all over it is making headlines despite less than a seven figure sum gone missing is funny too.

I wouldn't be thinking much of my career prospects at this security firm if I was the driver.Sounds very strange that there was no other security protocols in place apart from a quick visual check of who gets in the van.
