CREATED Sep 26, 2012

RENO, Nev. (AP) -- Two suspects have been arrested in the armed robbery of a small casino on the south side of Reno.

Authorities say one of the suspects displayed a handgun and demanded money at Dotty's Casino on Meadowood Mall Circle about 9:35 p.m. Monday. Witnesses say a second suspect held the door for the first suspect as they fled with the cash.

Washoe County sheriff's deputies arrested them later Monday night after a short car chase.

The two are identified as 33-year-old Ian Tucker and 22-year-old Tesla Tomlin. Each was booked into the Washoe County jail on armed robbery and conspiracy to commit armed robbery.
