Gordon Absher, spokesman for MGM Resorts International, which owns the Bellagio, made it sound like the suspect might have a hard time yet seeing a true payday: "At some point they [the chips] have to be redeemed," he said.
We know this much. Each chip was worth $100 to $25,000. The Bellagio still rocks high rollers.
Authorities said the heist went down about 3:50 a.m. Tuesday morning.
Police said this chip thief was behind a robbery with the same M.O. (helmet, motorcycle, scary gun pointed at patrons) at the Las Vegas Suncoast Hotel & Casino Dec. 9.
So if you see a motorcycle-riding guy making it rain with chips (that would hurt, wouldn't it?), you know who to call: Las Vegas PD.
