18 year-old Cody Aaron Thomas appeared in Missoula Justice Court Monday afternoon to hear charges that he robbed the Lucky Lil's Casino on Brooks Street on Friday night. Witnesses saw a man running out of the casino and head towards Southgate Mall where police arrested Thomas.

Thomas was placed in the Missoula County Jail on $50,000 bond after his appearance before Judge John Odlin on Monday afternoon. I spoke with Missoula Police Detective Sergeant Bob Bouchee about the robbery and arrest. That interview is below.
