The armored car company that lost nearly $21,000 picked up from an Atlantic City casino found no wrongdoing in its internal investigation, and will reimburse the money, police said.

GardaWorld armored car services made its daily money transfer at the Revel casino at about 10:30 a.m. Aug. 6, but later found more than $20,000 was missing, according to the report.

More video showed the bag was also there when another pick up was made at Resorts Casino Hotel — about six minutes away. The car then left Resorts down Pennsylvania Avenue toward Route 40 — with the bag still visible.

An internal investigation found that the Garda employee put the bag at "a workable height" on the truck, and there was no wrongdoing, regional security investigator Mike Zanatta told Atlantic City Sgt. Chris Barber.

Garda will reimburse Revel and absorb the loss, police said.

Zanatta told Barber he conducted a search of the truck's route, but did not find the money.

It is described as a clear plastic bag with “Revel” and a bar code on it. The investigation was closed with no criminal charges.

Anyone who may have found the bag is asked to call Atlantic City police at 609-347-5766.
