Las Vegas Woman Faces Federal Aircraft Threat Charge

LAS VEGAS -- A 25-year-old Las Vegas woman is facing a federal charge alleging she called a bomb hoax into U.S. Airways about a Sept. 11, 2010, flight out of McCarran International Airport.

U.S. Attorney Daniel Bogden in Nevada said in a statement Thursday that flight 399 to Phoenix returned to the Las Vegas airport and passengers and baggage were re-screened after the pilot was informed of the threat. No explosive was found.

Miki Victoria Sudo of Las Vegas is accused of telling the airline that her boyfriend, a passenger, would blow up the plane. Sudo surrendered to the FBI in Las Vegas pending a Thursday appearance before a federal magistrate.

She was indicted on a conveying false information charge. Bogden says Sudo could face five years in prison and a $250,000 fine.

Judge Won't Lower Bail for Accused Bellagio Bandit

LAS VEGAS -- A judge in Las Vegas on Thursday denied reduced bail for a man accused of robbing two Sin City casinos at gunpoint while disguised in a motorcycle helmet.

Clark County District Court Judge Michelle Leavitt kept bail for Anthony Carleo, 29, set at $1 million on charges he stole $1.5 million in casino chips from the posh Bellagio resort on the Las Vegas Strip in December.

Last week, prosecutors filed new charges  in a separate case, saying Carleo robbed another casino in northwest Las Vegas of nearly $19,000 in cash five days earlier.

Carleo's lawyer, William Terry, argued that the bail was excessive and not in line with bond set in other robbery cases. Terry said the charges in the robbery of the Suncoast Hotel & Casino were not surprising but were filed as retaliation by prosecutors after he declined a plea deal and filed a formal motion to lower Carleo's bail.
