Rolling Hills Casino Carjacking Cleared

Rolling Hills Casino Carjacking Cleared

The Strip isn’t the only place where casino players can find their favorite games. Rolling Hills is another spot as it has a casino facility. But casinos can be pretty dangerous as they attract all sorts of people.

Recently, there was a carjacking right outside Rolling Hills Casino. But the police got on the case and it was only a matter of time before Joseph Lodge and Roberto Diaz-Mendoza were arrested and sentenced for their crime.

The 2 Suspects Were Arrested and Sentenced

Casino winners and employees should be extra careful because they are the people that are at risk. Casino employees can be attacked if they happen to be the person that brings the cash in or out of the casino. Additionally, casino winners will be congratulated but looked at with envy and some people just might be looking to relieve them of their winnings, which is why they will stalk and follow them.

The parking lot is a space where these things can happen as well as other kinds of crimes. A carjacking took place recently at the Rolling Hills Casino parking lot. A man was in a vehicle and it’s unclear if the man had just parked or was going to leave. Either way, he was approached by 2 people.

One of them had a shotgun and asked him to leave the vehicle. The man didn’t hesitate and left it, fearing for his life. The 2 suspects then entered the vehicle and fled the scene. The robbed man didn’t hesitate and called the police. He gave a statement and the police started an investigation.

They found the 2 men that fit the description and they turned out to be Joseph Lodge and Roberto Diaz-Mendoza. They also found the stolen vehicle as well as weapons that are suspected to be the ones used in the carjacking. They arrested the men and they were sentenced to jail.

These kinds of events put everyone in the vicinity of the casino in danger which is why anyone in that area should be careful. Luckily, no one was hurt during the incident.

Conclusion

The 2 suspects that performed a carjacking at Rolling Hills Casino were arrested and sentenced to jail. They robbed the person of a vehicle at gunpoint as the police happened to prove. Luckily, the situation didn’t get out of hand and no one at the casino or outside of it was hurt.
