Five Indicted on Charges Related to Armed Robbery at Caesars in 2014
The Division of Criminal Justice obtained a seven-count Atlantic County grand jury indictment charging 20-year-old Izyiah Plummer of Atlantic City; 25-year-old Aaron Evans of Atlantic City; Nathaniel Greenlee of Bear, DE; 20-year-old Donovan Jackson of Wilmington, DE; and 21-year-old Dwayne Morgan II of Pleasnatville. Plummer, Evans, Greenlee, and Jackson were all charged with robbery and robbery-related offenses while Morgan II was charged with receiving stolen property.
The State alleges that early on the morning of July 21, 2014, Plummer and Evans arrived at Caesars in a car driven by Greenlee with Jackson in the passenger seat. Plummer and Evans allegedly entered the casino wearing masks and gloves and approached a security guard and another casino employee who were loading full cash boxes onto a trolley from a self-redemption terminal at a kiosk. Plummer allegedly pointed a handgun at the two employees. The State also alleges that Plummer pointed a gun at the security guard’s head while Evans removed three cash boxes from the trolley, one of which was dropped as the two left Caesars. According to the State, Plummer and Evans escaped from the casino with two cash boxes containing approximately $181,200.
Acting Attorney General John Hoffman said in a press release, “It is alleged that Plummer, who had been fired as a security guard at Caesars, used his knowledge of casino security operations to target the employees carrying out this large cash transfer, ruthlessly holding a gun to the head of a security guard. This allegedly was a violent and dangerous inside job.”
All of the defendants were arrested after the robbery and are currently free on bail.
