Casino Thief Steals $1.5 million in Casino Chips from Bellagio, Las Vegas.

Bellagio Robbed- $1.5 millon down in casino chips.
Police in Nedada in the US are hunting for a casino thief who walked off with around $1.5 million in chips from the Bellagio casino in Las Vegas. The robber wore a motorcycle helmet and carried out the crime in a matter of just minutes, much to the amazement of those who were at the scene. The man pulled his motorbike up outside the hotel in the early hours of the morning,  keeping his helmet on with the visor down as he strolled inside. He went straight up to the craps are, pulled out a gun, and took off with a box filled with casino chips before high tailing it back to his motorbike to make a clean exit.

The crime at the Belagio bears a close resemblance to another job that was carried out at the Suncoast Hotel casino , around 20 minutes away from the Bellagio. The cops are looking for a local man.

A man wearing a bike helmet stole around $20,000 in cash from a poker tourney  that night. Police have not yet said whether there is a connection between the two jobs- but given the similarities, it seems likely. If it was the same person, they have 2 helmets as the man who robbed the Suncoast Hotel Casino wore a silver helmet whereas the man that robbed the Bellagio had a black one.
