By Beacon Staff

Two men have been arrested after an armed robbery of a Kalispell casino.

Police say 20-year-old Jesus Sonny Din and 19-year-old Kyser Curtis Nelson were arrested Thursday. Din was taken into custody on a preliminary charge of robbery, and Nelson was arrested on a preliminary charge of accountability to robbery.

Police say a lone gunman entered Lucky Lil’s Casino on West Idaho Street at about 1 a.m. Thursday, brandished handguns and ordered everyone to get down on the ground. The robber left with an undisclosed amount of money.

Authorities followed a suspicious vehicle leaving the general area and arrested Din and Nelson at an apartment complex. Police say a search of the apartment and vehicle turned up evidence that implicated the men in the robbery.
