Isn't it ironic that thieves would hit & steal from the cars of the employees? They are the ones least likely to afford this type of crime...yet they become victims of their employment.
Then I ask why would anyone keep anything of value visible on the inside?
I have a collection of irreplaceable delta-blues casettes I made myself, but I also have backup CD's I burned and keep at another location
In Missouri, your car is considered part of your home (Castle Doctrine) but only when you are in it...so find the criminals and charge them with first degree stealing, and help the employees find a better place to park...like alngside the guests...with security.

I agree. Why would you leave money and a laptop in your car? Granted they have to pay for the windows that were smashed even those who didn't leave anything in their cars but why would you actually leave something out there for them to take? They probably seen the laptop sitting in the backseat and that's what started the whole thing!

My car was also broken into this morning at the hotel and I am not an employee. There wasn't much in it for anyone to take, but it's just the point. A broken out window in daylight...they do need better security there. I hope those thugs get caught.

Don't let management see you talking to news reporters, because it might cost you more than a vandalized car. We all want to feel safe wherever we are first and hope a pray noone would destroy or take our merchandise, but since that's not the case. Why burden the broke victim, again.

Then don't read it. I'm sure you would care if it happened to be your vehicle. In other words, keep your negative comments to yourself. There not worth saying.

Is this worth reporting on? YES! As well as what took place INSIDE the casino Friday night. Seems there were a few who felt compelled to steal from people without them even having a clue. I was a victim of a stolen $2100.00 ticket and a $900.00 ticket taken right out of my ZIPPED UP purse as well as $500.00 cash from my wallet which was ZIPPED UP inside of my ZIPPED UP purse. And I'm pretty certain there were other victims. People need to be aware of what goes on in there so there are no more innocent victims of these thefts. It's a shame and I know it will be a LONG time before I venture back. And I was pretty regular.

Then don't keep your stuff in your purse. Keep it in your pocket. It was wrong for anyone to steal stuff from you, but take a little bit of responsibility. You should have kept a better eye on your belongings, especially at a casino with that much money..... Don't blame the casino, blame yourself and the thief! How is it the casino's fault?

Not blaming the casino. Security did a great job and was right on it when it was realized what had happend. As far as the purse, it was on my shoulder in front of me. These thiefs are professional and work quickly... in groups. That's all. Out having fun w/ friends, winning. Somebody must have needed it more than I. Just leaves a bad taste in your mouth. Can't anyone have a good time anymore without worrying about who is going to ruin it? At least I didn't have to see the barrel of a gun or the blade of a knife. That's the bright side of it all.
