ST. LOUIS (KMOV)-- Police are searching for a suspect who robbed the Lumiere Place Casino.
Police said around 8:20 pm Tuesday a man handed the cashier at Peet’s Coffee and Tea a note suggesting that he had a gun. The cashier, a 28-year-old woman, complied with the robber and handed him cash from the register. The suspect then ran out and headed north on Second Street.
Police are trying to figure out how this happened since security and high tech surveillance make robberies inside casinos rare. So far police are not releasing the surveillance video of the suspect.
The suspect is described as a black male in his 20's, between 150 and 170 pounds. He was wearing a blue stocking cap and a blue hooded coat with white fur.
