Patrons were able to return to the Slots-A-Fun casino this afternoon and Las Vegas Boulevard was reopened after a suspicious package was found earlier today at the Las Vegas Strip casino.

Metro Police and the Las Vegas bomb squad were alerted to the suspicious package at 1:18 p.m. today, but Las Vegas Boulevard South was reopened shortly before 3: 30 p.m., police said.

The evacuation of the Slots-A-Fun, 2890 Las Vegas Boulevard South, was ordered as a precaution, police said. Police have not described what they found in the package.

Police had blocked traffic on Las Vegas Boulevard South between Circus Circus and Convention Center drives, a police spokeswoman said.
