Henderson police: Casino robbed twice by fedora-wearing man

A small Henderson casino has been robbed twice this summer, and investigators there note a man involved in each holdup was wearing a fedora.

And it could have been the same guy, Henderson police said Wednesday.

On Monday, a man described as black, 35 to 40 years old, about 6 feet tall and approximately 225 pounds demanded money from a cashier at My Casino on Boulder Highway at Greenway Road.

The cashier hesitated, police said, and the man waved a handgun around until the cashier complied. It is unknown how much money was taken.

On June 27, My Casino was robbed in a similar fashion by a man who also had a handgun. Police described the man’s physical traits as the same as Monday’s robber, except that he weighed 165 pounds.

Another difference: The man in the June robbery wore a light-colored fedora. Monday’s robber wore a black one.

Anyone with information in this case can call Henderson police at 702-267-4750. To remain anonymous, contact Crime Stoppers at 702-385-5555 or crimestoppersofnv.com.
