Vegas Cop Billed In Weekend Casino Robbery, Suspected In 2 Others

A Vegas officer has been held on charges he organized an online casino over the past weekend — and prosecutors told the judge he’s a suspect in 2 other, similar armed robberies.

Caleb Rogers, 33, has been held on two charges of robbery having a deadly weapon, one control of burglary having a gun and something control of attempted robbery having a deadly weapon, based on jail records, following a robbery in the Rio Casino Sportsbook in early stages Sunday morning, the Vegas Review-Journal reported.

Based on an arrest report reviewed through the newspaper, police allege that the man they have since recognized as Rogers ran as much as two casino employees at 6:56 a.m. on Sunday because they were trying to stock the sportsbook’s cash drawer with $119,000 in money in a plastic bag.

“Escape from the cash. There is a gun. I’ll shoot you!” Rogers allegedly told the 2 employees. Then he allegedly shoved the feminine worker down and stated, “This isn’t your hard earned money. It isn’t worth losing your existence regarding this.”

The thief then started shoving the money right into a bag hidden in the jacket and, as they was distracted, the worker who had been shoved down pulled alarms to alert security.

The thief observed the lady had pulled the alarms, leaped over-the-counter and started to leave the casino getting secured just over $78,000 in cash.

Casino security tackled the thief inside a front yard resulting in the property’s parking garage, after which he allegedly removed a silver revolver in the waistband of his pants and pointed it in the security pads.

“Are you prepared to be shot over this? I will shoot you! Go on and shoot me now!” Rogers allegedly told the safety pads who tackled him.

Among the pads allegedly grabbed the gun to prevent Rogers from firing and, as other officials became a member of the struggle, they pried the gun from his hands.

Once the police showed up, Rogers allegedly said excitedly he would be a fellow Vegas officer. He eventually requested to have an attorney.

Everybody they removed a black drawstring bag from Rogers in the scene and came back $78,898 towards the casino after photographing the money. Additionally they retrieved a surveillance video allegedly showing Rogers driving an unregistered blue Chevrolet minivan to the casino property.

At Monday’s court, prosecutors told the judge that Rogers has become a suspect in robberies at both nearby Red Rock Resort and also the Aliante Hotel, based on the Review-Journal.

Police stated this past year the Red Rock Resort was conned on November. 12, 2021 around 3:40 a.m. with a “white-colored male adult between 30 and age forty, 5 ft 8 inches to five ft 10 inches tall, with a medium build,” the Review-Journal reported at that time. 

Police released a picture of the suspect inside a Jan. 6 robbery “at Aliante Parkway and north 215” — the position of the Aliante Hotel — based on Vegas NBC affiliate KSNV. He was referred to as “white-colored or Hispanic adult male of medium build, about 5’8” to 5’10” tall.”

After Monday’s hearing, the judge reaffirmed Rogers’ formerly-set $250,000 bail, and stated that, if he made bail, a hearing could be held to look for the supply of the cash, based on the Journal-Review. Las Vegas CBS affiliate KLAS reported that he’ll also need to put on an ankle monitor and become barred in the Vegas strip.

Rogers was suspended without pay after his arrest, based on a release in the Vegas Metropolitan Police Department. Steve Grammas, obama from the Vegas Police Protective Association policeman’s union, told KLAS that Rogers isn’t titled to union an attorney within the incident.
