ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. — Police are seeking two masked suspects who robbed an Atlantic City casino at gunpoint and made off with more than $180,000.

The heist occurred Monday morning at Caesars Atlantic City.

A law enforcement flier obtained by The Press of Atlantic City says the suspects fled in a car with two plastic boxes containing more than $180,000 in cash.

Police are not releasing any details.

The newspaper reports that the State Police Casino Gaming Bureau is handling the investigation. That's a sign the crime happened in the casino as opposed to the hotel.
