AC weighs armed guards on casino floor

The state Division of Gaming Enforcement is studying a request from Trump Entertainment Resorts to allow it to post armed guards on the casino floor

TRENTON - The state Division of Gaming Enforcement is studying a request from Trump Entertainment Resorts to allow it to post armed guards on the casino floor and in other areas.

The request comes after two fatal carjackings from the parking garage of the Trump Taj Mahal Casino Resort in the last 16 months.

The request, if granted, would enable all 11 casinos to use armed guards.

David Rebuck, the division's gaming enforcement director, says the request poses "serious legal and policy issues" that need to be dealt with first.

AP wire services contributed to this report.
