ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (AP) - A former security guard who robbed an Atlantic City casino shortly after he was fired from it is going to prison for 11 years.

Izyiah (Eye-ZAY’-ah) Plummer of Atlantic City pleaded guilty in August to armed robbery, conspiracy, aggravated assault and weapons offenses.

Three other defendants who were indicted with Plummer have pleaded guilty and face prison sentences in connection with the robbery when they are sentenced on March 17.

Authorities say Plummer used his knowledge of the Caesars casino layout and procedures to rob it of more than $181,000 on July 21, 2014.

Police say he approached a security guard and another employee who were loading full cash boxes onto a trolley from a kiosk on the casino floor, pointed a gun at them and demanded cash.
