    Glitz Casino

    a friend of mine who has a timeshare at La Cabana sent me this last night or maybe this morning, not sure.

    "Jane Muir yesterday afternoon around 3:30 the manager of the Glitz Casino at La Cabana, along with another employee were on their way to deposit money. A white Toyota tercel pulled up as they were headed to the bank. They had a gun and spoke Spanish and demanded the money ($65,000 US). Anybody with tips, call the hotline"

    I've seen chatter about this as well, but not anything confirmed or really much information at all. I've seen conflicting amounts and unsubstantiated accusations.
    One thing I don't like about these stories when they come out is that they always start with so much speculation and we never seem to find out what happens with the investigation or results.

    the diario listed a different amount of $$ stolen.

    Sounds like no vehicle at all. Were they on foot?

    It does sound strange indeed. Walking around with 65k or whatever the actual amount was is not a good idea IMO regardless of where you are. I won't give my thoughts as Andrea correctly said to wait.

    Yes I saw the Face Book post earlier in the week but nothing confirmed, different amounts and story changed a few times too.
