Armed Men Steal $11,000 From Poker Game
Armed Men Steal $11,000 From Poker Game - News Story - WEWS Cleveland
CLEVELAND -- Two men armed with assault rifles robbed a private party Monday night.
They got into a high-stakes card game and left with $11,000.
The robbery happened at an apartment on Lake Avenue near the Lakewood-Cleveland border.
The men forced seven players to take their pants off and then doused them with pepper spray before fleeing, police said.
Card games are legal in Ohio, as long as the host doesn't charge a fee or keep a percentage of the payout.
The game was publicized on a Web site for local poker players.
A similar robbery happened at a game in Solon earlier this year. Thieves got away with $75,000. Seven people were arrested in connection with the case last month.
One of the players from that game also was in the apartment Monday."Like" us on facebook! https://www.facebook.com/pages/Offic...93147194083228

"Attempting" to rob my home game would be another chapter in the Victim Fail Book. I'm normally not the only armed person at the table. If you did make it out, the poker room has a Juliet balcony. Any sharpshooter/sniper on our site would walk into the house and use the poker room as a hide. You would own the only entrance/exit to the neighborhood. Sweet Jesus it would be beautiful.
