Sparks police are searching for a man who attempted to rob a local casino's sports book on Tuesday.

On May 16, just before 11 a.m., officers received a call from the Alamo Casino at 1950 E. Greg St. and advised that an attempted robbery had just occurred.

Surveillance footage shows a black male adult enter the casino wearing dark clothing, backpack, beanie, and gloves.

The male then contacts a clerk at the sports book and hands over a note demanding all the money.

The clerk threw the note back at the suspect and the male suspect then exits the casino.

The suspect was last seen entering what appeared to be an older white Dodge Stratus sedan fleeing from the area.

The male did not obtain any money.

Anyone with information on the suspect’s identity is urged to contact the Sparks Police Department at 353-2231 or Secret Witness at 322-4900.
