The Fitzgeralds logo is a 4 leaf clover their theme, the luck of the Irish.But it was an unlucky morning at the Tunica County Casino, when at 7 AM an armed robber demanded money from a cashier cage and made away with a bundle of cash. "We do know there was one suspect that came inside with weapons and left with an undisclosed amount of money" Casino security staff quickly followed the getaway car down the road by car to a nearby apartment complex. "And because of that we were able to get in touch with the Tunica Sheriff's department so quickly" Deputies immediately put a lockdown on the Riverchase Apartments. In their effort to find three suspects, they inspected the cars of everyone going in or out. Questioned residents, and with guns drawn, searched each unit with the help of a canine cop. "The dogs spotted them all the way across so we're checking each apartment right now" The robbers abandoned a car at the complex, but must have run on foot, because a 5 hour search turned up nothing. Residents were hoping they could feel sure they were out of danger. "They could have easily killed anyone you know what I'm saying so that's kind of good that they searched the apartments like that." But the search for casino crooks will have to continue elsewhere.
