A casino robber has just been convicted by the police.

Recently, a robber was convicted by the police. That may sound pretty ordinary, but the circumstances surrounding the story are quite strange. That's because the robber, a former prison inmate who was serving a prison sentence for a bank robbery, is now being charged with another crime. He is said to have masqueraded with black make-up and then stolen $23,000 from a cashier of a casino on the Las Vegas Strip.

A cashier from New York-New York

In January, the famous New York-New York hotel casino on the Strip in Las Vegas was the victim of a robbery. The employee of the casino who was giving the money to the robber was not entirely convinced that he was black. She informed the police on request that the complexion was irregular and patchy.

Cameron James Kennedy tried to fool the cashier of New York-New York with black make-up.

Up to 20 years in prison

This detail helped arrest Cameron James Kennedy, a 26-year-old Las Vegas resident. He is now facing a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison. The robber was also convicted by another anonymous tip stating that Cameron had raided a casino.

After being released in July of last year for two bank robberies in 2012, Cameron was put under house arrest until the trial in July last year.
