Urban Crime Legends Abound in Vegas
Some time ago, talk of organ stealing in Vegas began being rampant. The legend goes that a tourist had a few drinks at a Vegas club, and later woke up in a hotel bathtub covered in ice. He found a note nearby advising him to call an ambulance. Upon being taken to the hospital, doctors informed him that one of his kidneys had been removed, apparently so it could be sold on the black market. This legend also has no basis.
With so many crime legends circulating, it can be difficult to tell the truth from reality. If you believe you have witnessed a crime, contact the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department. You can choose to remain anonymous if you wish.
