Troyon Johnson may have seemed like an ordinary poker player visiting the Rivers Casino in Virginia. He had the chips and he was in the room moving about the tables. Maybe he was waiting for the right table or his favorite one was full.
Either way, it didn’t take long for Johnson to show his true face. He wasn’t interested in the game. He was interested in the chips and when no one was looking he snatched a couple of them. It’s estimated that he stole $7,000 worth of chips. After that act, he shamelessly went to the cashier to cash them out.
The cashier didn’t note anything suspicious and started turning the chips into money. While he was doing that Johnson went for the register and got an additional $2,600 and started running. An officer spotted him and alerted his colleagues on the radio.

Naturally, the two officers started searching for Johnson again. He wasn’t far, he was hiding in some nearby bushes. It didn’t take long for the officers to find him and a second chase was underway.
