New York Police have arrested a 30-year-old man who allegedly robbed a Verona-based gambling parlor. Jacob Walsh reportedly carried a firearm
when he paid a visit to the Turning Stone Casino. The robbery occurred last evening.
Bag filled with money
Walsh approached one of the casino employees and told her to put all the money from the till in his bag. The robber from Newfield, New York threatened to use his firearm. He fled on foot
after the cashier had filled the bag with money.
Shelter in the woods
State Police teamed up with the Oneida Nation Police in the investigation. Police officers were able to trace the criminal shortly after the casino robbery
. The suspect had fled into the woods, and he didn’t resist arrest. Walsh is being held in the Oneida County Jail, and he is due before the judge on August 25.
