RENO, NV - A Reno man is charged with impersonating a gaming control board officer to rob an elderly woman.

The GCB says March 24th, Hines Vonhollen was at the Atlantis in Reno watching people gamble, and approached an elderly woman who had just won $235 from a slot machine. An agent says Vonhollen identified himself as an officer and asked to see the winning slot ticket, which the woman didn't want to hand over. He allegedly grabbed it from her and cashed it in, then ran off. The woman wasn't hurt.

Vonhollen, who has a record, was arrested this week by parole agents and charged with robbery, impersonating an officer and elder abuse. His bail is $24,500.
