Las Vegas police have released stills of a man caught on video who is believed to have taken part in a robbery at the Sahara Casino two weeks ago.

The man is described as a white male between the ages of 20 and 30 years-old, with a thin build and with a thin moustache.  He was last seen wearing blue jeans, a green or brown hooded sweatshirt with lettering down the front left side and a yellow baseball cap. Authorities said the man loitered for about 20 minutes, then entered the casino's poker room where he stole between four-thousand and five-thousand dollars from an employee working the counter of the poker room at gunpoint. No one was injured during the armed robbery.  Anyone with information on the crime is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 385-5555 (local Las Vegas area code). 

The Sahara Hotel and Casino, which opened in 1952, is a hotel casino located on the Las Vegas Strip in Winchester, Nevada. The hotel has 1,720 guestrooms and suites.

The Sahara ranks the last remaining vintage "Rat Pack" casino-hotel, and today anchors the northern end of the Las Vegas Strip.

The 1960 version of Ocean's Eleven was filmed here.
