A Helena man was arrested at a casino Sunday night after allegedly robbing a separate casino just down the street.

Helena Police responded to a robbery call around 10:15 p.m. on Feb. 16 at Bowser's Lucky Dog Casino.

An employee told police a man entered the casino and demanded they give him the cash from the till, and said he had a gun in his pocket.

The employee turned over the money and the individual then fled on foot.

Police located 49-year old Andrew Hunt who matched the suspect's description later that evening at The Money Train Casino, one block away from Bowser’s, and placed him under arrest.

The case is still under active investigation.
