ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (CBSNewYork/AP) — Nearly $21,000 was missing Tuesday after cash fell from the roof of an armored truck that had picked it up from a soon-to-be-closed Atlantic City casino.

GardaWorld armored car services picked up the cash at Revel on Aug. 6.

An incident report obtained by The Press of Atlantic City said surveillance video showed the bag holding the cash on the rear driver’s side roof as the truck left Revel. The bag was still on the roof when the truck pulled away from nearby Resort’s Atlantic City and headed toward Route 40.

It was not clear where the bag fell off.

Revel, which is Atlantic City’s newest casino, will close its hotel on Sept. 1 and its casino on Sept. 2 because of financial problems.

It will be the second of four Atlantic City casinos to shut down this year as the Atlantic City gambling market continues to crumble.

Revel said it still hopes to find a buyer through the bankruptcy process. But it acknowledged that if that happened, it would be after the facility had already shut down.
