On July 26, 1993, the daughter of casino mogul Steve Wynn (2006) was kidnapped from her home and held for ransom by two masked men. The kidnappers ordered Wynn to deliver the ransom money in the Sonny's Saloon parking lot (saloon's original Spring Mountain Road location). Wynn had an employee deliver 1.45 million dollars in cash from the Mirage's casino vault to the kidnappers. In return, the kidnappers revealed the location of Wynn's daughter. Wynn's daughter was found unharmed on the back floor of her car in the McCarran International Airport parking lot. The two kidnappers and an accomplice would later be taken into custody in California and receive prison sentences.
