Masked Gunman Steals $1.5M in Casino Chips from Bellagio


At 3:50 am on Tuesday, Bellagio casino surveillance video shows a man wearing a full faced motorcycle helmet going up to the craps table, pulling out a gun and grabbing $1.5 million worth of chips from the table before running out and driving off on his bike.

Seems like a simple and effective heist. But, he forgot one thing. He needs to cash those chips in at the casino to get any real cash.

So, police are on alert for anyone attempting to make such a transaction. The chips themselves also contain serial numbers and RFID chips which will make cashing them in difficult for the robber.

Wonder if he’ll be featured on "Dumb Criminals Caught on Tape."
