ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. -

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 casino in Atlantic City.

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

Surveillance video showed the bag holding the cash on the rear driver's side roof as the truck left Revel, according to an incident report obtained by The Press of Atlantic City.

The bag was still on the roof when the truck pulled away from nearby Resort's Atlantic City.

It's not clear where the bag fell off.

The company is investigating and cooperating with law enforcement, said Joe Gavaghan, a GardaWorld spokesman.

Revel will close its hotel on Sept. 1 and its casino on Sept. 2 because of financial problems.
