Bourbon Street : The Robbery Capital of Vegas

The armed robbery last week of a cashier at the Bourbon Street casino marked the ninth such crime this year and the second since 2003 for the off-Strip property, Metro Police statistics show. Police say a man got change from the cashier about 2 a.m. Wednesday, then pulled out a handgun demanded the money. He then ran from the building, stopped at the front desk and pulled the gun on another employee before running outside, Lt. Ted Snodgrass of Metro's robbery section said. That morning's robbery was the second of its kind in less than a week in Metro's jurisdiction of Las Vegas and unincorporated Clark County. At this rate, more than three robberies a month this year, casinos in Metro's jurisdiction are poised to dramatically outpace the 15 robberies recorded by police last year and the 19 the year before. There's also the high profile that comes with incidents such as the March 11 robbery of a Mandalay Bay change booth while the casino was crowded with patrons.
