LAS VEGAS (AP) -- Police in Las Vegas are now describing O.J. Simpson as a suspect in a hotel-room break-in that involves sports memorabilia.
Simpson has been released following questioning about the incident at the Palace Station casino last night. He's still believed to be in Las Vegas. A police spokesman says, "We don't believe he's going anywhere."
Police say "associates of Simpson" were also questioned, along with the alleged victims. The police spokesman says Simpson "made the comment that he believed the memorabilia was his."
Investigators plan to give their report to prosecutors today. The DA's office will then decide whether to pursue charges.
Simpson has had to auction off his collectibles, including his Heisman Trophy, to pay some of the 33.5 million-dollar judgment awarded to the family of Ron Goldman. Simpson was acquitted of murder charges in the deaths of his ex-wife, Nicole, and Goldman, but a jury later held him liable for the killings in a wrongful-death lawsuit.
