Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- A hole in security could be leaving guests on the Las Vegas Strip open to crime.
The Associated Press found 23 of the 27 major Strip properties have no surveillance in hotel hallways or elevator landings.
Casino bosses say there are already thousands of cameras watching the gambling floors, lobbies and elevators.
But, the most common crimes in hotel-casinos are hotel room burglaries.
AP interviewed casino officials and visited the hotels that would not comment.
According to AP, only Caesars Palace, Planet Hollywood, the MGM Grand and Tropicana Las Vegas monitor the halls above their casinos.
Experts say cameras could also help prosecute more serious crimes like rapes.
