Rio Robbery Suspect Makes Court Appearance
Only one of the two men arrested last week in connection to the robbery at the Rio Casino appeared in court this morning. Police say 62-year-old Hiroyuki Yamaguchi is the Lucky Cab taxi driver who dropped 55-year-old Steven Gao off at the Rio and then picked him up. In court, Yamaguchi requested a Japanese translator. Police are still looking for Gao. Police believe that he may have fled to California. Last Thursday, investigators say Gao entered the casino with a black bag, wearing a fake mustache and took around $35,000 worth of chips. The second suspect 41-year-old Edward Land is due in court tomorrow.
