Dec. 15, 2010 -- A motorcyclist robbed the Bellagio Casino in Las Vegas yesterday morning. Here's what the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department reported about the robbery:
On December 14, 2010, at approximately 3:50 a.m., the Bellagio Casino, 3600 Las Vegas Blvd. South, was robbed. The suspect arrived on a motorcycle and parked just outside the north valet. The suspect, wearing a full-face motorcycle helmet, entered the casino and went directly to a craps table. He pulled a gun, told everyone not to move and took approximately 1.5 million dollars worth of casino chips. The suspect then ran back out to the motorcycle and exited westbound on Flamingo Blvd.
This is believed to be the same suspect that robbed the Las Vegas Suncoast Casino poker room cashier on December 9, 2010, at approximately 12:30 a.m. by similar means. In this event he was also operating a motorcycle.
The suspect is described as a white male adult, 5'10"-6', 220 lbs. He was carrying a handgun and was last seen wearing a white motorcycle helmet, black down jacket, black pants and black gloves.
The motorcycle is described as a 2009-2010 black sport bike.
