LAS VEGAS (AP) — A Las Vegas police officer has been sentenced to 12 years in federal prison for stealing nearly $165,000 in a trio of casino heists starting almost two years ago. Caleb Rogers also was found guilty Tuesday at trial of using a loaded police department-issued weapon during one of the robberies. Rogers is still employed on unpaid leave while the agency completes its internal affairs investigation. Rogers’ lawyer says they will appeal his sentence and conviction. A federal jury in July convicted Rogers of all three robberies after a weeklong trial.
