Metro Police are looking for a man they call a person of interest in Friday's robbery at the Bellagio's casino Friday night.

Police on Saturday said a man entered the casino about 8:30 p.m. Friday, confronted employees while holding a handgun and demanded money. The man fled with an unknown amount of money before officers arrived, Metro spokesman Jose Hernandez said.

It's not clear where inside the casino the man committed the robbery, nor is the manner of his escape. Metro has not officially released that information.

Detectives are looking for Jesse Jones, 32, who is described as about 6 feet 2 inches tall and 215 pounds with a bald head and blue eyes. He has the words "white pride" tattooed above his eyebrows.

Anyone with information about Jones or the robbery is asked to call Metro Police at 702-828-3591 or, to remain anonymous, call Crime Stoppers at 702-385-5555.
