Metro police are looking for a suspect who robbed the Rio Las Vegas Hotel and Casino just after 4:30 Thursday morning.

Police say a man walked into the casino and began stealing chips from a gaming table. When a dealer tried to thwart the robbery, the suspect produced a gun.  He fled the scene in a waiting taxi, and was dropped off at the Terrible’s Hotel and Casino on Flamingo Rd. and Paradise Rd. There are reports the suspect may have boarded a CAT bus to continue his getaway.

The suspect, who is still at large, is described as a white man in his 40’s with a mustache and was last seen wearing a tan jacket and dark pants.
