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.
As of 3:45 p.m., no hazardous materials were found, but authorities were double-checking to be sure.
Koren said a suspect is in custody and described the situation as an "isolated incident," though he declined to release any identifying information.
A portion of the hotel was evacuated, and police are still asking people to avoid the area of Fashion Show Drive between Las Vegas Boulevard and Sammy Davis Jr. Drive.
The department's ARMOR unit, which responds to suspicious items, has been called to the scene, according to LVMPD.
Fashion Show Drive is closed between the Strip and Sammy Davis Jr. Drive.
