The news report from PlaySlots4RealMoney.com News in Last Vegas states that local police are searching for a second person in connection with Saturday’s attempted robbery at Las Vegas casino Ellis Island.

The police are listing this second male as a person of interest. He has not been referred to as a suspect at this time. The primary suspect in the robbery has been identified by police as a ‘black male adult who was wearing a maroon hoodie, a black hat, blue jeans and glasses’. They are also asking that anyone with any information pertaining to this case should contact the Las Vegas Police Metropolitan Department. There is also an anonymous Crime Stoppers crime line at 702-385-5555.

The crime took place at 8:13 p.m. local time on Saturday at Ellis Island Casino. The suspect entered the casino floor and went to the main cage area. He approached a group of employees and demanded money while brandishing a handgun. The man was last seen running from the casino. Barry White of KTNV News tweeted later that night after the crime that ‘Las Vegas Police surround Harbor Island Apartments searching for a man who attempted to rob Ellis Island Casino earlier this evening’.

Nina Porciuncula of VegasInternationalHotel.com added in one of her tweet on the matter, ‘LVMPD searching for the man who attempted to rob Ellis Island Casino. Suspect brandished a gun at the cash cage, demanded money. Employee backed away and the suspect fled. Detectives are on the scene investigating’. The second person of interest in this crime was detected on surveillance footage from the casino. It is unknown at this time whether or not he was an accomplice to the crime. He is simply wanted for questioning.

Even Steve Wynn from the Las Vegas Casino industry must be a bit on edge with some of these latest robbery attempts by armed perpetrators. Just recently, an unidentified woman did rob South Point Casino in the same fashion and made off with an undisclosed amount of cash. There are no further updates on that crime at this time.

The combination of a large number of casinos filled with cash from an endless sea of gamblers paints a very attractive setting for bold robberies such as these. Why burst into a convenience store with a gun to try and make off with a couple of hundred bucks when you can burst into a casino with hopes of running off with thousands of dollars.

In reality, the robbery at South Point Casino and the attempted robbery at Ellis Island Casino are easy ways to get a long stint in prison given the use of a firearm in a crime. This type of criminal activity is going to be taken extremely seriously in a town that earns its living off a casino gambling. You would also have to believe that with all the video surveillance present in your typical Las Vegas casino, that these suspects will eventually be identified and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

While it's true that Illinois has legalized sports betting, the state's largest city (3nd biggest in the US), Chicago, has forbidden firms from taking bets there.  That could all change....though probably not until after the 2021 NFL season.
