Two suspects wanted in $180K Atlantic City casino heist

ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. -- Police are seeking two masked suspects who robbed an Atlantic City casino at gunpoint and made off with more than $180,000.

The heist occurred Monday morning at Caesars Atlantic City.

A law enforcement flier obtained by The Press of Atlantic City says the suspects fled in a car with two plastic cash boxes containing more than $180,000 in cash.

A gun was brandished by one of the suspects during the robbery, according to the flier.

Police are not releasing any details.

The newspaper says the State Police Casino Gaming Bureau is handling the investigation. That's a sign the crime happened in the casino as opposed to the hotel.
