A Gallatin County Judge has ordered $60,000 bond for a man accused of robbing a Belgrade casino.

50-year-old Stuart John Stratton is charged with felony robbery.

According to court documents, witnesses told police Stratton walked into the Jackpot Casino on Jackrabbit Lane, put his hand into his jacket pocket like he had a gun and demanded money.

Records indicate an officer was in the area at the time and when he pulled over Stratton, cash fell out of his jacket pocket.
