Arrest of ‘Audacious’ Suspect Accused of Multiple Casino Robberies in Las Vegas

Law enforcement officers from the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department (LVMPD) arrested an individual on Thursday who is suspected to be responsible for six casino robberies that have taken place since November, as well as eight other armed holdups.

Nick Farese, a LVMPD deputy chief, announced the apprehension of the alleged serial casino robber, identified as Dshante Styles, 33. Styles was taken into custody and processed, then transferred to a Clark County Detention Center cell, where he was held as of Thursday night.

Farese stated that the LVMPD had worked “long hours” and “tirelessly” to find and arrest Styles in connection to the string of robberies that occurred in Las Vegas and Henderson, NV. He added that the suspect was “brazen and a threat to our community,” describing Styles as a “dangerous individual.”

Styles is facing charges for six counts of robbery with a deadly weapon, two counts of attempted robbery with a deadly weapon, 11 counts of burglary with a deadly weapon, and five counts of grand larceny auto, in addition to domestic battery. Two of the eight armed robberies were carjackings. Should he be convicted of all charges, Styles could face a lengthy prison sentence.

The LVMPD’s investigation revealed that the robberies began on November 16, with several off-Strip casinos being targeted, including the Gold Coast, the Green Valley Ranch, the Silverton, and the Rampart.

In January, two other alleged casino robbers were apprehended in connection to a robbery at Resorts World on November 9, which led to the arrest of Zubaid Al Jarmi, 25, and a robbery at Caesars Palace on January 8, which led to the arrest of James Booth, 37. Both cases are still pending.
