Venezuelans rob slot machine at Alhambra Casino of US$ 70K
A group of Venezuelans left Aruba with 70,000 USD they robbed at an Alhambra Casino slot machine, which they had tweaked in some "mysterious" way to pay out this considerable amount in one day. The tourists committed the robbery in one single day and at one single slot machine. Once casino security noticed what was happening, it was already late and 70,000 USD had been cashed in by the different players. Apparently they returned the next day, one of them came in to use the machine. When an employee said the machine was out of order and an investigation was ongoing the person disappeared. By the time the casino alerted police, the tourists had already left the island traveling to Panama via Curacao. Their departure could have been avoided, but the casino's security system and set up had not worked fast enough to make this possible.
