Showgirl spectacle Jubilee to end Las Vegas run on Thursday

The showgirls of the long-running Las Vegas spectacle Jubilee are hanging up their elaborate headdresses.

I-Team: Most locals never see Strip's gritty underbelly

If you haven't been to the Las Vegas Strip in awhile, be forewarned.

While most visitors and locals have enjoyable experiences at the hotels and restaurants, a new crime wave is underway, including an explosion of prostitution-related robberies, gangs, drugs, even pickpockets.

The I-Team was allowed to tag along with both uniformed and plainclothes teams who have their hands full trying to keep the Strip safe.

The first line of defense is the uniformed officers who project a strong police presence on the streets and sidewalks.

The more sinister and sophisticated crime groups are a whole different challenge. They have their hands in drugs, robberies, human trafficking, auto thefts and a range of often violent, highly-organized crime... Read More

I-Team: Prostitution linked to serious crimes on the Strip

Super Bowl weekend meant huge crowds of visitors and locals on the Las Vegas Strip and other properties.

Visitors see the neon and the spectacle of Las Vegas, but the police who work the tourism corridor see something else entirely.

As the economy has rebounded, so have criminal organizations which target tourists. More visitors means more criminals to rob them.

Metro Police are out there every night, but they need help.

The I-Team was given total access to tag along with the teams who are on the front lines.

Veteran officers say they've never seen anything like it. There's a new breed of criminal on the Strip. They're highly organized, relentless, and ubiquitous. Metro is out there every night, but at times it feels like trying to hold back the ocean with their fingers. It takes a special breed of cop to handle this work... Read More

I-Team: New breed of criminal on the Las Vegas Strip

Trick rolls that turn into assaults and robberies. It's happening every single night on the Las Vegas Strip. Metro Police are struggling to cope with a new wave of serious crime in the resort corridor. Officers and detectives are stretched to the limit because of organized thievery and violence.

To paraphrase Obi-Wan Kenobi ... "You will never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy."

Over the weekend, visitors in town for the Super Bowl were being eyed as targets by a new breed of criminal that preys on the tourism corridor.

The I-Team tagged along for a few nights as seasoned officers tried to stay one step ahead of the bad guys.

"Walking on bridge, it's kind of a circus up here man," said Officer Calvin Wandick, Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department.

For him and the other uniformed officers who patrol the Strip every night, on the bridges, the sidewalks, and the streets, it's like a convention of thieves and lowlifes. ... Read More
