Seneca Casino's Poker Room Robbed By Lone Bandit

Seneca Casino in Niagara Falls, New York has become the latest target of criminals, after a lone robber made off with a stack of hundred dollar bills from the casino’s cashier counter.
The incident took place on Thursday afternoon at around 3:15pm, when a white male described as in his late 30’s, about 5′ 5″ tall, wearing a black hoodie, blue jeans, white trainers, black sunglasses and a black New York Yankees baseball cap, walked up to the poker room cashier’s counter and demanded $15,000 in hundred dollar bills.
When the one of the two cashier said she did not have “three stacks of hundreds” in her cash drawer, he directed her to another drawer where he told her the money would be found and then lifted up his shirt slightly, telling her he was carrying a gun.
All the while, the cashiers described how the robber appeared extremely nervous and was stuttering his speech throughout the whole incident.
Despite neither cashier seeing a gun, they were taking no chances and so handed over to him an undisclosed amount of cash, after which he fled the casino, jumped on a BMX bike and made good his escape via Wendel Way.
The bizarre incident is the first time the Seneca Niagara Casino has been robbed since opening its doors in December 2002, and the New York State Police investigators believe the man may have been a past customer of the casino, considering his intimate knowledge of the poker room.
The man’s image was also captured on the casino’s video surveillance, and police have asked anyone who may have any knowledge concerning the robbery to contact them on 716-286-4545.
