    A man who followed a woman home from a Hollywood casino broke into her house and stole thousands of dollars worth of chips, police said.

    Del'Jimmyo Wright-Johnson, 21, was arrested Wednesday on charges of home invasion robbery and grand theft, according to a Davie Police report.

    Wright-Johnson, of Miramar, was being held without bond Thursday. It was unknown if he has an attorney.

    According to the report, the woman had been playing Baccarat at the Seminole Classic Casino and left with $8,000 in chips.

    As she was driving to her home in Davie, the woman felt that she was being followed. As she walked to her front door, a man yelled "excuse me ma'am" but before she could close the door, Wright-Johnson pulled it open, pushed her to the ground and took her purse, the report said.

    "I was, like, pretty shaken and, like, traumatized and I blacked out," the victim, who did not want to be identified, told NBC 6.

    A few hours later, Wright-Johnson went to the casino and tried to cash in $2,097 in chips, the report said. Wright-Johnson denied robbing the woman and told police the chips were from his winnings earlier in the day.

    But video from the casino showed Wright-Johnson watching the victim while she played Baccarat and showed him following her outside.

    Court records show Wright-Johnson was on probation for allegedly stealing chips from the casino back in June.
