RENO, Nev. (AP) — Police in South Lake Tahoe say a casino security guard was one of three men arrested on robbery and drug charges after a man who answered a Craigslist car-for-sale ad reported he was beaten and robbed of $30,000.

The Reno Gazette-Journal reports (http://on.rgj.com/1EMR9oq ) that Jeremy Wood, Dylan Sapsford and Eric Anderson were arrested Sunday, after the robbery was reported Saturday in Roseville, Calif.

Police say Wood was arrested at the Lakeside Casino, where he works as a security guard.

Police say Anderson was arrested at home by officers who also found marijuana plants.

Sapsford was arrested in a traffic stop in a vehicle that police say was identified in the robbery.

The alleged victim wasn't identified, and it wasn't clear if he was received medical treatment for injuries.
