Las Vegas robbery
It has been the tenth Las Vegas robbery this year. It could be the work of the same criminal responsible for the Suncoast Hotel & Casino incident. Recently a helmet wearing gunman robbed the Suncoast venue. The robber escaped with loot valued at around €15.000. Bellagio officials are convinced that the thief will not be able to cash in the chips without informing the police. It’s almost impossible to redeem chips with a value of €19.000.
