Las Vegas Man Arrested in Rio Heist Pleads Not Guilty

LAS VEGAS --  An accused accomplice in a heist that netted $33,000 worth of chips from a Las Vegas casino pleaded not guilty to robbery, burglary and conspiracy charges.

Attorney Louis Schneider entered the plea Tuesday in Las Vegas Justice Court on behalf of his client, 41-year-old Edward Land.

Land and 61-year-old taxi driver Hiroyuki Yamaguchi were arrested last week on suspicion of being in cahoots with the accused robber, 45-year-old  Steven Gao. Police say Gao was the wig-wearing gunman who wielded a gun at the Rio hotel-casino on Thursday, swiped chips and fled in Yamaguchi's taxi. Gao remains at large.

Judge Deborah Lippis set bail at $125,000 for both men, with a March 15 court date. Yamaguchi entered no plea and told the judge he wasn't sure he could afford a lawyer.

The Marshals are looking for 25-year-old Robert Jackson. Police say on August 19, 2007, several members of the Squad Up and Wood gangs were involved in a fight in front of a bar on the Las Vegas Strip.

The incident started with the two groups throwing cans at each other. It turned into a fist fight and then shots rang out. The early morning shooting happened on the sidewalk in front of Margaritaville, near the Flamingo Hotel and Casino.

Police say Jackson, who is a known Squad Up gang member, fired five rounds from a handgun into the crowd, striking four innocent bystanders.
