Kansan Unfit For Trial In Vegas Casino Heist

A 34-year-old Kansas felon has been declared psychologically unfit for trial in federal court in the July armed robberies of a Las Vegas Strip casino cashier and a bank.

Trial was canceled Friday for Scott Alan Carmitchel on charges of interference with commerce by robbery at the Bellagio and armed robbery of a City National Bank branch.

Carmitchel was ordered to remain in federal custody for mental health treatment and another psychological examination.

U.S. District Judge Richard Boulware in Las Vegas scheduled a March 3 status check in the case.

Carmitchel was released from a Kansas prison in December.

He’s accused of spending nearly $50,000 from the July 25 Bellagio heist and the July 22 bank robbery on prostitutes and a shopping spree.
