ATLANTIC CITY - (AP) - Eight people, including a recently fired security guard, are under arrest in connection with the daring armed robbery of an Atlantic City casino.
    
The July 21 heist of Caesars Atlantic City touched off a three-state manhunt that ended with a Delaware state trooper being shot, but the bulletproof vest he was wearing saved his life.
    
New Jersey State Police say Izyiah Plummer and an accomplice brandished a gun and robbed former co-workers of two plastic boxes of cash with more than $180,000 inside.
    
Five are charged in the heist and remain in jail. Three others are accused of receiving stolen property.
    
It could not immediately be determined if they have hired lawyers.
