BUTTE – Police in Butte are looking for the suspect who robbed a local casino Wednesday morning at gunpoint.

The suspect entered the Happy Endings Casino on Paxson Street about 2:30 a.m., pointed a small handgun at the casino attendant and demanded money. He took an undisclosed amount of cash from the casino employee and took off on foot in an unknown direction.

“He was about 5 foot 9 inches, 5 foot 10 inches wearing a sweatshirt, having his face covered, possibly the sweatshirt had some fur around the collar of it. That’s all we know right now. We are trying to obtain video from the casino to review the video further,” said Butte Undersheriff George Skuletich.

Anyone with information on the suspect in the robbery is asked to contact police at 497-1120.
