    Security is VERY tight there. One time someone stole my purse and they caught him before he could leave !! But yes, you have to NOTICE it’s gone right away, and rush to report it !! PS I no ;longer carry a purse, there. I keep my cash in my front pocket. You never know about people !!

    You have security cameras up the wazoo every time you turn around.
    In fact Big Brother is watching where ever you go these days.
    They’ll nab this guy in a day or two.

    isnt mohegan sun have security on the premises? what is the point of having security if the man has escaped?

      To answer your question . Yes . They have security on premise. I would say this cutey got away with the purse before she could notify security. They then went back and reviewed the tapes of where this woman was and saw the POS take the purse.
