Gunmen Steal Money from Display at Calif. Casino

LAKESIDE, Calif. (AP) — Four masked and armed intruders tried to steal a display case full of money from a suburban San Diego casino by chaining it to an SUV parked outside, but the plan went awry.

San Diego County sheriff's Sgt. Tom Poulin says the case ended up toppling over in the lobby during the predawn Wednesday heist and one of the robbers fired a gunshot into it.

The Sheriff's Department says the robbers got away with an unknown amount of cash from the display, which featured a stack of dollar bills with a $100 bill on top.

The SUV was found about a mile away with a bag of cash inside. The robbers remain at large.
