Robbed At The Slots
By Shay Sokol
CENTRAL BUSINESS DISTRICT- An 85-year old woman had her purse stolen out of her hands on Tuesday, January 25th at Harrah’s Casino by a man who must’ve run out of luck at the slots. Surveillance tapes reveal the unknown perp as a middle-aged white male wearing a black leather jacket, light colored pants, and a fedora hat. Crimestoppers is now offering up a hefty $2,500 reward for information. Eighth District Detectives are on the case to teach us all a valuable lesson: not just anybody can blow their luck at Harrah’s, and leave with someone else’s.
