Lucky Lil’s in Billings Not So Lucky Again
I cannot get over the amount of robberies that actually take place in this town. I mean, I feel like I'm bound to be somewhere where one is happening eventually just based on the frequency! What I would like to know is with the number of people in this town that carry, how can these robbers have the guts to attempt to rob somewhere. Either they think they are invincible or they haven't come across a place that has someone pointing a gun back. I guess maybe their odds are worse than mine.... News story below.
KCTR Newsroom - On Tuesday night, yet another casino robbery occurred in Billings as Lucky Lil’s was held up at gunpoint, according to the Billings Police Department. A man walked into the Casino located at 770 King Park at about 7:10 p.m., reportedly brandishing a firearm and demanding cash. Shortly afterward, the suspect left with what was described in the release as an undisclosed amount of money.
No one was injured, and the BPD continues to investigate the incident. It was the same Lucky Lil’s that was robbed just a few months ago on November 12, 2016. In that incident, three men entered the business brandishing firearms, took money from the business and wallets and money from the patrons. No employees or patrons were hurt during that robbery, but one patron needed medical attention for a medical condition resulting from the robbery. Two men have been charged in that case.
