Las Vegas security officers take armed robbery suspect into custody

Las Vegas NV Feb 10 2017 After a busy Sunday of heavy Super Bowl betting, Israel Jackson walked up to a South Point sports book counter, pointed a gun and handed a trash bag to the manager, according to a Metro Police arrest report.
Jackson, 32, made it to the casino's valet area with $58,616, but was taken into custody by security guards in part due to a silent alarm triggered during the robbery, police said.
In an interview with detectives, Jackson, who may be connected to at least one other high-profile robbery, said he was sorry and that he needed money for his children, police said.
Officers were dispatched to the property, 9777 Las Vegas Blvd. South, about 9:20 p.m., police said.
Jones walked in through the valet area and headed toward the being counter where he pointed the gun and demanded money before going behind the counter, police said.
Jackson was confronted by security personnel as he walked out and was taken into custody without further incident, police said. Officers recovered the money and a handgun. Jackson told detectives he had randomly chosen the location and that he walked there, according to the report.
Jackson was booked into the Clark County Detention Center. He is facing one count each of robbery with a deadly weapon and armed burglary in connection to the Sunday robbery; in a separate case, he was booked on one count each of robbery with a deadly weapon and armed burglary, and one count of attempted murder.

Further details were not immediately available.
