Police search for Vegas casino robber

13 November 2008

LAS VEGAS, Nevada -- Metro Police are searching for a man who walked up to a downtown Las Vegas casino cage cashier, handed over a note and walked out with thousands of dollars in cash about 4 a.m. today.

Although no weapon was seen by anyone inside Fitzgerald's hotel and casino, police said the robber implied he had one.

The robber left Fitzgerald's and hailed a cab on Third Street with $5,300 in cash, police said.

Before going to Fitzgerald's, the same man caused some kind of disturbance at the Golden Nugget, but security guards there escorted him off the property, police said. Robbery detectives were securing video camera tapes at the Golden Nugget.

The man who robbed Fitzgerald's is described as stocky, about 5- foot-10 to 6 feet tall, about 31 years of age with dark hair and a moustache, police said.

Anyone who has any information is asked to call Metro Police at 828-3111 or, for those wishing to remain anonymous, call Crime Stoppers at 385-5555.
