Sparks, Nevada police are hopeful that video surveillance of an individual suspected of robbing an elderly woman of $400 at a Reno area casino should assist in the man’s rapid apprehension. 

Around 4:25 p.m. the woman was gambling at the Western Village Casino at 815 Nichols Blvd. when the suspect allegedly swiped her casino credits, totaling approximately $400.  She had apparently become distracted at the time.

Police describe the suspect as a Hispanic male, approximately 5’6″ to 5’10” in height, between 160 and 180 pounds with goatee style facial hair.

He was last seen wearing a black leather jacket, a black V-neck T-shirt, black pants and a black hat.  You can view the image of the suspect caught on video below.
