A Casino in Meyrin victim of armed robbery

By Sophie Couard

The casino in Meyrin has just been robbed.

While Switzerland is currently voting on a gambling law to be implemented on the 10th of June 2018, there has been another incident in this country that has caught our attention. This time, unfortunately, it's not a big progressive jackpot - like the one just won at the Swiss Casino St. Gallen. Rather, it is an unfortunate story instead. A casino in Meyrin on Lake Geneva was the victim of an armed robbery on Monday 12th March.

A small score of just a few thousand francs

Around 6 o'clock in the morning, a man attacked the casino in Meyrin, near Geneva airport, threatening the employees with a gun. He captured a few thousand francs and fled. The investigation is now being conducted by the police.

Employees in shock

Luckily, there were no dead or injured people in the incident. Nevertheless, the five employees who were present at the time of the incident are in shock, as the attacker also fired at least one shot from his gun.

The investigation of the case is ongoing.
