LAS VEGAS, Nev. (702 Times, NV Globe) – An arrest complaint states that during a heist at Resorts World this month, a guy handed a cashier a note threatening to shoot them if they didn’t fill a bag with money.
According to Las Vegas Metropolitan Police, they responded to the Strip resort about 1:53 a.m. On Wednesday, November 9, on a robbery report.
Officers discovered that a guy entered the casino through the valet door and remained near the high limit cage. After the other customers had departed, the man approached a window, pulled out a letter, and tossed a plastic sack upon the counter.
According to the police report, the robbery letter stated, “Fill the bag or I will shoot you.”
As the guy yelled threats, the clerk filled the bag. After filling the bag, the cashier dashed to the rear and told a management that they were being robbed. According to police, the guy took around $6,000 in cash and fled via the valet area into a waiting taxi.
According to investigators, the cab picked up the guy near the Gold Coast and brought him to Resorts World, where it waited for him to return. The cab then went to the intersection of Rochelle and Decatur, when the guy jumped out and fled north, according to police.
When police studied surveillance footage, they noticed a man who looked to be underweight and wearing a wig. When Resorts World employees checked their video, they noticed a guy acting suspiciously. Zubaid Al Jarmi, 25, was recognized. He was spotted loitering near the site of the heist, observing police, shortly after arriving to Resorts World.
Detectives discovered that Al Jarmi had already been caught and sentenced for stealing The Venetian’s casino cage in 2020. They examined evidence from the heist and compared Al Jarmi’s stride to that of the guy from Resorts World. They also claimed that the note used in the 2020 incident had the same identifiable “R” as that used at Resorts World.
“These two cases have some very unique similarities and differences that all point to Al Jarmi being the suspect in the Resorts World robbery,” police wrote. They say Al Jarmi was caught in the 2020 robbery because he used his own car to get away, and that “he would have known not to use his own vehicle again.”
On November 16, Al Jarmi was apprehended. While he was being examined by a detective, officers executed search warrants and discovered a wig in his apartment and a full revolver magazine in the trunk of his car, according to the arrest report.
According to court documents, Al Jarmi is being jailed without bail on counts of robbery with a dangerous weapon and commercial burglary. His next court appearance is set on December 6.
