Woman Sought in Casino & Hotel Robberies
Billings Police are seeking the public’s help in locating a woman involved in a robbery at the Western Executive Inn on King Avenue West early Wednesday morning. KTVQ.com reports that a suspect said she had a gun and demanded money, then fled prior to officers arriving. A white passenger car was involved with the Lucky Lil’s casino robbery, and officers located a similar car shortly after the hotel robbery.
They detained two female suspects, identified as 35-year-old Meadow Bighorn and 40-year-old Heather Thompson, both of Billings. The women admitted to being involved in the hotel robbery and casino robbery on April 25. Bighorn was incarcerated at the Yellowstone County Detention Facility, but Thompson, who was left unattended, simply walked out at around 6:30 a.m. Anyone with information about Thompson’s whereabouts is asked to contact the Billings Police at 657-8200.
