A trio of violent thieves “terrorized” high-rollers coming out of Detroit casinos, carjacking them and stealing their winnings.

“The conduct was so brazen, and so dangerous we are very fortunate no one was killed,” said U.S. Attorney Matthew Schneider.

All three are now behind bars, serving time in a federal prison.

Only on 7, federal prosecutors who busted the crime ring wide open are speaking for the first time.
