After cashing $240 from a slot machine at MontBleu Resort Casino and Spa, a 47-year-old Cameron Park man was robbed when he was walking toward another casino, authorities said.

The thief said he had a gun when demanding the man’s money during a confrontation near Harveys Resort Casino on Oct. 1, a Douglas County sheriff’s deputy reported.

The man was unharmed as the robber took the cash and ran. No gun was seen but the thief had his hands in a sweatshirt pocket.

The thief was described as being a white male adult, 5 feet 10 inches tall, with blond hair and a goatee.
