    Nearly $21,000 in cash is missing from the Revel Casino in Atlantic City after it was left on the roof of an armored truck.

    Nearly $21,000 is missing after the cash fell from the roof of an armored truck that had picked it up from a soon-to-be-closed Atlantic City casino.

    A GardaWorld armored car picked up the cash at Revel on Aug. 6.

    An incident report obtained by The Press of Atlantic City says surveillance video showed the bag holding the cash on the rear driver's side roof as the truck left Revel. The bag was still on the roof when the truck pulled away from nearby Resort's Atlantic City and headed toward Route 40.

    It's not clear where the bag fell off.

    Revel, which is Atlantic City's newest casino, will close its hotel on Sept. 1 and its casino the following day because of financial problems.
