Officials didn’t release an estimate to repair the damage.

Roadhouse Casino Employee Allegedly Embezzles $15K

A bookkeeper at Elko, Nev,’s Roadhouse Casino allegedly recently stole over $15K from an ATM at the gaming property.

Sara R. Brady, 54, was arrested on May 16 on four counts of embezzlement, according to the Elko Daily Free Press, a local Nevada news outlet.

She was booked at the Elko County Jail. Her bail was set at $400K. Brady’s case was turned over to local prosecutors.

Brady was the only employee who had authority to fill the ATM with cash, the report said. Nor could anyone else open the ATM, she confirmed to police.

In an unrelated incident, also in Elko County, on May 1 three Wendover Nugget employees were charged with conspiring to embezzle. One of them has agreed to a plea deal, according to the Daily Free Press.
