Wynn Resorts, according to CNBC, is being investigated for possible money laundering by the Manhattan and Las Vegas U.S. attorney’s offices along with the IRS and the Drug Enforcement Administration.

Steve WynnWynn has been a troubled stock of late, given tighter regulations on its Macau casinos by the Chinese government. CEO Steve Wynn said, “We are not aware of any criminal investigation of the company and no agency has notified the company that it is under any kind of investigation.” Wynn added that the fact that agencies request information “in no way implies the accusation of any wrongdoing.”
