Vegas TV Station Interviews Matt Walker
LAKE LAS VEGAS, Nevada – The Mobile man accused in the high dollar antique heist did an interview with a Las Vegas TV station.
Matt Walker talked to a reporter last month about the closing of Montelago Casino in Lake Las Vegas, Nevada. “It’s just a shame to have something this serious happen. It takes the developer of these condos and hurts them. It takes the guys who are in these stores and hurts them. It doesn’t do anything but hurt.”
Later, he reportedly told some of the locals that he had plans to buy the place. Private investigator Paul Fava met Walker and heard the story himself. “He said he was visiting from Alabama and that he was looking to buy a local casino that he said was for sale.”
Walker is no stranger to media coverage.
Last year, the prominent entrepreneur was charged with four counts of receiving stolen property. Authorities found upwards of a million dollars worth of stolen heirlooms at his homes in Mobile County.
In court last November, we learned that Walker was reportedly in a California rehab but no one would tell us why. Now, he has resurfaced in an exclusive community outside Las Vegas.
Even thought Walker’s passport was given to the court last year, he has the legal right to travel around this country.
Walker’s case is expected to be heard by a Mobile County Grand Jury soon.
