A man is in custody after issuing a bomb threat to the Trump Hotel in Las Vegas.
According to News3LV:
LAS VEGAS (KSNV) — Authorities have a man in custody after he claimed to have a bomb inside the Trump International Hotel near the Las Vegas Strip on Tuesday.
Las Vegas Metropolitan Police said they got a report about the item around 1:10 p.m. at a property near the 2000 block of Fashion Show Drive.
Capt. Dori Koren with LVMPD said a man entered the hotel with a large suitcase and duffel bag and yelled there was a bomb in the building.
The man left in a taxi, and the hotel got two more bomb threats over the phone about 15 minutes later, Koren told reporters.
We’re on scene with our @ClarkCountyFD & @LasVegasFD. This appears to be an isolated incident but we’re still in process of conducting our investigation. Please expect some limited traffic closures in the area of Fashion Show Drive and Las Vegas Blvd. for the time being. #lvmpd
