SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico -  (AP) Police in Puerto Rico's capital are searching for a lone man who robbed $340,000 from a popular hotel and casino by threatening a supervisor's family.

A police statement says the robber approached the supervisor at the San Juan Marriott Resort & Stellaris Casino before dawn Sunday and showed a note threatening him and specific members of his family.

The supervisor, Denny Ciprian Correa, told detectives he emptied a safe of cash and gave it to the man because he was scared for his life. Police have not said if the supervisor reported seeing a weapon.

Police say surveillance videos show the middle-aged suspect walking out of the casino with several full bags. The statement says the man apparently fled in a dark-colored Toyota Yaris.
