ATLANTIC CITY (WPVI) -- A fourth person has pleaded guilty in a robbery involving a former Atlantic City casino security guard targeting workers handling cash boxes.

Attorney General Christopher Porrino on Monday announced that 26-year-old Aaron Evans, of Atlantic City, pleaded guilty to a second-degree theft charged.

The state will recommend he receive eight years in prison when he is sentenced March 17.

Evans admitted that he was one of four men involved in the robbery at Caesars in July 2014.

Evans and gunman Izyiah Plummer went inside the casino and took cash boxes containing $180,000. Plummer was a former security guard at the casino. He pleaded guilty to armed robbery and other charges in August.
