LAS VEGAS --Las Vegas police detectives are investigating an early morning robbery at the Bellagio.
Police say around 3 a.m. on Tuesday, a man wearing a motorcycle helmet walked into the pit area with a gun. Officers say he pulled out a gun at the craps tables and told casino guests not to move. Police say he got away with $1.5 million in casino chips, ranging in denomination from $100 to $25,000.
The suspect then fled the scene on a motorcycle. No one was hurt in the robbery. Police say the robbery took about two minutes and the suspect specifically targeted the craps tables.
