Laughlin casino reopened after search yields no threat

Colorado Belle

An anonymous threat against a Laughlin hotel and casino forced customers and employees to evacuate today for more than two hours.

Metro Police received a request about 11:20 a.m. from Colorado Belle administrators to search the premises in the 2100 block of Casino Drive and evacuate guests and employees. The search yielded nothing suspicious, Metro spokeswoman Laura Meltzer said.

Guests and employees returned about 1:30 p.m. to the Colorado Belle.
