Early morning on September 16th, three men wearing disguises and carrying rifles shot a guard at Casino, and took off with a undetermined amount of money.
Sargent Mark Doiron says the men walked in and fired several shots causing a panic from the customers. An unarmed security guard on duty, was shot on the left side and suffered serious internal injuries.
The three men proceeded to empty the cash registers, and escaped in a dark colored vehicle that was later found by police on the east side of Saint Louis. The vehicle was said to be stolen.
The Security Guard, who’s name has not been released, was taken to a St. Louis hospital where he undertook two surgeries. Police say he’s stable and has a long road of recovery ahead of him.
Officers interviewed many witnesses while the department has offered $26,000 to any information leading to the arrest of the men involved
This is the first of these kind of heist since the casino opened in 1993, unfortunately the casino will be closed following the robbery. They plan to reopen after authorities complete their investigation.
Justifeyed would have been able to help in this situation by putting an information and evidence tool in the hands of the witnesses. The footage would have gone straight to police, without the perpetrators even knowing. This could have gotten authorities there quicker ,and they may have been able to prevent the criminals from fleeing.
This is just another reason why you need to invest in Justifeyed. We cannot help stop criminals if we as victims do not have a powerful tool in our hands to give us our own sense of security.
