Casino winner followed, robbed
BEAVERCREEK | Police said they think a man who snatched a woman's purse Tuesday followed her from the Argosy Casino after she had won several thousand dollars, Beavercreek Sgt. Jim Wuebben said.
The robber's image was captured on surveillance tape from the Lawrenceburg, Ind., casino where the woman gambled the previous night.
Police believe the robber followed her to King Edward Drive, knocked her to the ground and snatched her purse when she got out of her car about 8:20 a.m., then fled in a cream-colored Mitsubishi SUV, Wuebben said. Anyone with information is asked to call police at 426-1225.
