Man Claiming to Have Explosive Arrested in Las Vegas

Authorities say a man has been taken into custody for claiming to have an explosive device at the Boulder Station Hotel and Casino.

Las Vegas police Sgt. John Loretto says no explosives were found at the scene. He says a call came in just before 11 p.m. Wednesday and an armored response team quickly arrived at the casino and took the man into custody.

Initial reports said the casino was evacuated, but Loretto says some patrons were just moved from one part to another.

Loretto says "We get about 300 calls like this a year. The only added attention here is that it's New Year's Eve."
