The suspects attempted to break into the casino using an unspecified power tool. The noise, however, likely alerted a nearby resident who contacted police Humberside Police.

The would-be thieves were reportedly still in the act when the police arrived, according to a Humberside Police statement. One of the three suspects fled in a white BMW they allegedly used as transportation. The fellow suspects took off on foot.

The suspects reportedly left the power tools behind.

Police are still searching for the suspects. Police hope they can track them down with the help of locals.

Street surveillance, business monitors and doorbell cams are increasingly popular in the UK. The Humberside Police have called out to anyone who may have caught glimpses of the crooks on camera to submit the footage.
