An elderly man was robbed of $20 Million on Thursday night after he uplifted the money from a relative who was in the Princess Casino gambling. However, the money was not part of any winnings.
According to reports, the gambler reportedly made contact with the relative and asked him to come to the casino to uplift the money during the night.
Moments after the man collected the large sum of cash and was making his way to the parking lot, he was accosted by a car of men just outside the casino area and they grabbed the money bag and made good their escape.
The gambler who handed over the money, is a well-known Water Street businessman who was charged two years ago for the murder of his biker friend, but the case was dismissed after witnesses did not turn up in court.
Ironically, the robbery took place on the anniversary of that murder.
There are reports that the businessman acts as an “official loan shark” at the casino and would have millions of dollars at any given time to loan to gamblers. Several sources confirmed to News Source that the money was not part of any winnings.
