The soon-to-be-closed Revel just can’t seem to catch a break.

Earlier this month, more than $20,000 was lost when an armored car company picked up money from the Atlantic City casino — and left one of the bags on the roof.

Now, an investigation is underway to find out what happened to the money.

Hours after GardaWorld armored car services made a cash pickup at Revel on Aug. 6, the casino was notified that nearly $21,000 in currency was missing, according to an incident report obtained by The Press of Atlantic City. The report does not indicate the total amount of the full transaction.

A review of surveillance video shows the truck leaving the Revel’s porte cochere with the bag on the rear driver’s side roof of the truck at 10:51 a.m. — about 20 minutes after the first bag was picked up, according to the report.

The money is still there when the truck makes a pickup at Resorts Atlantic City — about six minutes away, according to surveillance there, the report states.

The truck then leaves down Pennsylvania Avenue toward Route 40 — with the bag still on the truck’s roof.

It is not clear where or when the money fell off.

The Boston-based company has an open investigation on the case, a Garda spokesman said.

“We are cooperating with the authorities in investigating this incident and cannot provide any additional details,” said Joe Gavaghan, director of corporate communications.

Revel spokeswoman Lisa Johnson said she couldn’t comment on the case.
