SIOUX FALLS, S.D. — Sioux Falls police say the man arrested in a casino robbery may also be responsible for two other similar casino robberies.

The 27-year-old man was arrested last Friday as a suspect in the Crown Casino robbery Sept. 6. Police spokesman Sam Clemens says investigators believe the man also robbed Duece’s Casino and Rice Lake Casino on Sept. 1 and 2.

He was arrested along with two others who were in a car in the Walmart parking lot. Police say they found marijuana, methamphetamine and a handgun.
