An 81-year-old man took matters into his own hands Sunday after he was relieved of his casino winnings at an east-end ATM. An elderly couple were at the ATM to deposit money they had won at a casino, according to police.

The man chased down the robbery suspect with his car, cornered the man in a nearby alley and retrieved his cash, police said. Police say they were called to a robbery in progress at an ATM on Montreal Road and St. While the couple were at the ATM, a man at the adjacent machine asked them for assistance with his debit card.

During this distraction, the man grabbed the envelope with the casino winnings in it and fled, police said.

The 81-year-old man gave chase in his car, and cornered the suspect in an alley.

The two struggled, and the 81 year old recovered the envelope after the suspect dropped it on the ground.

With the help of a description of the suspect and a cellphone photo, police officers made an arrest without incident.

Kevin Harris, 44, faces charges of robbery with violence, possession of property obtained by crime under $5,000 and failing to comply with a court order.

Carl Icahn has pulled off his second coup in two weeks, as Icahn Enterprises (ticker: IEP), the limited partnership that he controls, reached a deal to sell its majority-owned casino company, Tropicana Entertainment (TPCA), for $1.85 billion to Gaming and Leisure Properties (GLPI) and Eldorado Resorts (ERI).

The transaction follows a deal last week, when Icahn Enterprises agreed to sell its wholly owned auto-parts company, Federal-Mogul, to Tenneco (TEN) for about $2.4 billion in cash and stock, netting an estimated profit of $700 million -- about a year after Icahn Enterprises bought out minority holders.

Icahn Enterprises didn’t give a per-share value on the Tropicana deal because Tropicana will pay some taxes on the transaction, which one Tropicana holder estimates could be close to $100 million.

Tropicana’s thinly traded shares are up $15 to $70, valuing the company at nearly $1.7 billion.

In a statement, Icahn said: Icahn Enterprises first acquired an interest in Tropicana in 2008.
