Casino Robber Claims Theft Two Years Later

Casinos are an environment where players can enjoy their favorite casino games. Casino operators hire dealers to control the games as well as additional employees to work certain areas of the casino. These employees must take care to follow the proper rules and regulations so that the casino is operating properly. In most cases, employees do as they should, but sometimes employees will try and cheat the casino to make a quick buck. When this happens, the employee ends up getting caught and losing their position, earning jail time.

A former employee of a casino in Nevada recently turned himself in for robbing the casino, even though the robbery took place two years previously. The employee, Dell Eugene Warfield III, turned himself in supposedly stealing over $160,000 from the gambling site.

The robbery took place in 2013 when Dell was working at the William Hill Race & Sports Book Primm Valley Resort and Casino. This facility is located in Stateline and Dell reportedly came into the casino and went straight to the state. He then opened the safe and took the cash from the casino. Dell knew the code to the safe since he was an employee of the casino.

The robbery was captured on camera at the casino but since the safe was accessed via the code, the alarm was not set off. An employee reportedly saw the heist take place and Dell was able to get away. The twenty four year old ended up turning himself in earlier this week on charges of theft and burglary.

It is unclear as to why he turned himself in and if there is any money remaining from the amount taken from the safe. When the robbery took place, Dell reportedly texted his dad, stating that he would not be hearing from him again after he got ‘caught up’.
