Armored Car Loses $21K After Bag Left on Roof

Some lucky traveler in New Jersey may have scored the easiest jackpot ever from a casino. The Press of Atlantic City reports that a bag filled with $21,000 from Revel casino went missing because an armored car drove off with it on the roof. The best part is that surveillance video shows the bag was still up there when the vehicle stopped at another casino about six minutes later. The GardaWorld driver, still apparently oblivious, drove off on Pennsylvania Avenue toward Route 40, and the bag fell off at some point afterward. The bizarre incident only adds to the money troubles for the casino, which is set to close next month, notes the Star-Ledger. (More armored car stories.)
