SIOUX FALLS, SD -
Sioux Falls police are looking for a casino robber who drove off with cash and a customer's car.
Around one o-clock Monday morning, police say a man entered the Suds N Suds - Deuces Casino, showed a gun, demanded money and then snatched a customer's car keys. He then ran out and drove off.
"It seems a little bold. We haven't had any types of crimes like that. We've certainly had enough robberies in the past and we haven't had anybody that's taken anything from any of the patrons that have been in. Most of the time, they just tell them to stay put and leave," Sioux Falls Police Public Information Officer Sam Clemens said.
The suspect is described as a six foot tall black man weighing about 300 pounds. They're also searching for the car he took: a silver, 2007 Pontiac G-6 with South Dakota plates 1XF239.
