Las Vegas police investigate robbery at The Cosmopolitan

Updated June 8, 2021 - 11:51 am

Las Vegas police are investigating a robbery at a casino cage of The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas on the Strip early Tuesday.

Police spokesman Misael Parra said police were called to a gaming property for a robbery in the 3700 block of Las Vegas Boulevard South at 6:46 a.m. Parra did not identify the property by name, but multiple police cars were observed by a reporter outside The Cosmopolitan at the time.

Police released very few details about what happened. Parra said only that the call involved “a robbery at a casino and a suspect is in custody.”

“It was at the casino cage,” Parra said. “It is still active. Detectives are still working on this.”

This is a developing story. Please check back for details.
