Police Search for Kalispell Casino Robber

By Beacon Staff

Police are looking for a man who robbed a casino at knifepoint early Wednesday.

Kalispell Police Chief Roger Nasset said a masked man entered the back door of Lucky Lils Casino at about 12:55 a.m., showed a knife to a clerk and made off with between $400 and $500.

Police arrived about five minutes after the clerk called 911, Nasset said, and investigators found the robber’s discarded mask just north of the casino. Two people gambling during the robbery didn’t appear to notice the man when he walked in.

Police said the robber was wearing a mask similar to one worn in the horror movie “Scream.”
