(Video) Bellagio Hotel In Vegas Robbed Of $1.5 Million ... In Chips

Talk about ninja. Authorities say a helmet-clad robber took $1.5 million worth of chips from the Bellagio hotel in Las Vegas and got away on a sport-bike motorcycle.

Did the douche gunman make it back to L.A?

And, the real question, let's just say you get away with taking all those chips. How do you redeem them? Sneak back in and ask for a half-mil in cash at a time?

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.
