Casino Heists

On September 6, a man stole thousands of dollars in chips from a live dice table at the downtown El Cortez casino. The thief jumped onto the craps table and grabbed handsful of high-denomination chips. Sources told Vital Vegas the crook got $19,100 in chips. El Cortez didn’t confirm this, nor did the casino make a public statement about the theft in September.

In April, the LVMPD officer accused in three Nevada gaming property holdups appeared in Nevada federal court. Caleb Mitchell Rogers, 33, pled not guilty in the federal cases stemming from the theft of about $164,000.

In one incident, Rogers is accused of a holdup of the Red Rock casino on Nov. 12, 2021. He allegedly robbed $73,810 from a cashier’s cage. He is also accused of the robbery of the Aliante Casino in North Las Vegas on Jan. 6. He allegedly stole $11,500 from that cashier’s cage.

On Feb. 27, Rogers allegedly stole about $78,898 from the Rio Casino Sportsbook. The money was eventually recovered and returned to the casino. Rogers allegedly threatened to shoot a Rio casino worker during the heist.

Rogers was confronted by casino security guards on the pavement near a casino parking garage. Rogers then allegedly brandished his firearm and threatened a guard, police said. But the guard clamped his hand around Caleb’s gun, stopping Caleb from firing a round. The guard then grabbed the firearm from Rogers’ hand. Other guards then tackled the suspect onto the pavement.

The firearm used in the Rio robbery belonged to the LVMPD, based on the weapon’s serial number, the Las Vegas Review-Journal reported. Rogers was suspended without pay from his LVMPD job.

A federal grand jury indicted Rogers in March on three counts of interference with commerce by robbery and a single count of brandishing a firearm during and in relation to a crime of violence. If convicted, Rogers faces up to 20 years in prison for each count of interference with commerce by robbery. He also faces life imprisonment for brandishing a firearm during and in relation to a crime of violence if convicted on that charge.
