Nothing gets me fired up like a good Vegas sports book robbery story. There’s something about a guy who’ll roll into a Vegas sports book, pull a gun and start grabbing cash. The part that constantly amazes me while I’m on the toilet enjoying a good sports book robbery story is that these guys never seem to be gunned down in the parking lot. How is that even possible?
I walk into Vegas casinos and all I see are casino cops ready to defend the turf. How does a guy go from a sports book cage to his car and not take gunfire from a casino cop? I’m starting to think that casinos don’t want bullets flying for marketing purposes. Makes sense, but still, you’d think one of these robbery bros would take a bullet.
From CBS-8 Las Vegas:
According to officers, the suspect entered the sports book, jumped into the cage area where the money is distributed, showed a handgun and demanded money.
Police said the man told employees to put the money in a duffle bag and the employees complied. Metro said the suspect left using an exit by the garage and got into a gold SUV, possibly a Chevy Tahoe before he left.
The vehicle was last seen going east on Blue Diamond Road.
I’m starting to wonder if this is the same guy who robbed the Hooters sports book back in May.
There was also a sports book robbery last week at a casino on the Nevada-Utah line where a guy wearing a Packers hat had a gun and made a withdrawal.
Seems like it’s sports book robbery SZN.
