Authorities Investigate Casino Robberies

By Beacon Staff

GREAT FALLS – Police are looking for a man who tried to rob a Great Falls casino Tuesday morning, and authorities in Libby say two men have been charged after an armed robbery of a casino there last week.

In the Great Falls case, witnesses say an armed man walked into the Magic Diamond Casino on 10th Avenue South at about 1:30 a.m. and demanded valuables from patrons. He left when he was denied.

The suspect is described as between 19 and 20 years old and about 5-foot-6. He was last seen wearing a white bandanna over his face and a red, hooded sweat shirt.

Meanwhile, two men have been charged after leading authorities on a high-speed chase following an armed casino robbery in Libby on Friday night.

Michael Davis, 37, of Helena, was charged with robbing the Lucky Logger, a casino and Town Pump. David Redford, 50, of Moyie Springs, Idaho, is charged with robbery by accountability.
