Seminole Hard Rock casino cashier accused of stealing almost $10,000

TAMPA — A Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino cashier stole just under $10,000 on Sunday, according to arrest records and a tribe spokesman.

At about 6 p.m. Stacy Pires, 22, of Lakeland, took the money. Surveillance cameras and "other sources" noticed the theft, said Seminole spokesman Gary Bitner.

"There are hundreds of surveillance cameras everywhere in the complex," Bitner said. "It's really a place people can't get away with anything."

Pires was arrested Monday morning and charged with grand theft and conspiracy to commit grand theft. She was released on $3,000 bond.
