Popular Las Vegas Poker Room Robbed At Gunpoint

Las Vegas police have released surveillance stills of the Bellagio robbery suspect

Las Vegas police have release surveillance pictures of a man they are looking for in connection with an armed robbery at the Bellagio Casino poker room.

The robbery was reported just before 3:50 p.m.at the Bellagio poker cage, according to Officer Larry Hadfield of the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department. The employees complied with the suspect's demands and handed him an undetermined amount of money. "We're following those leads", said Capt. John Pelletier of the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police. Pelletier said, however, that it appears that person came "against his will", though he would not say whether the person was kidnapped. They surrendered the money quietly, so no customers would get hurt.

"So we are playing poker at the @BellagioPoker and a guy walks up with a gun and robs the cage thirty feet from us ten minutes ago. Excellent staff, cool under pressure", he added. Bellagio has seen some high-profile heists in recent years, with arguably the most infamous happening in 2010 when a man wearing biker gear took $1.5 million in chips. The crew played by a big-name cast - including George Clooney, Brad Pitt and Matt Damon - aimed to rob the Bellagio, the Mirage and the MGM Grand.
