LAS VEGAS, Nev. -- A major heist took place at a Las Vegas casino early riday morning. Sources say the suspects may have got away with hundreds of thousands of dollars. 

Metro police confirm that two suspects robbed the sports book just after 6 a.m. They are still at large. Police also believe a third person may have been involved as a getaway driver.

Lt. Clint Nichols tells Eyewitness News that the suspects used handguns and the whole ordeal was well planned and took less than one minute.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crimestoppers at 385-5555.
