    Arrest made in $1.5M Bellagio casino chip heist - Yahoo! News

    LAS VEGAS – Police have arrested a 29-year-old Las Vegas man in the brazen armed robbery of $1.5 million in casino chips from the posh Bellagio resort on the Las Vegas Strip.
    Las Vegas police said Anthony M. Carleo was the motorcycle-helmeted bandit who waved a gun, grabbed high-value casino chips and made off on a motorcycle before dawn Dec. 14. No shots were fired and no one was hurt. Police said then that they thought the same man robbed the Suncoast casino in northwest Las Vegas early Dec. 8.
    Bail was set at $15,000 pending a Friday court appearance on felony armed robbery and burglary charges, according to Clark County jail records. Jail records showed Carleo in custody under another name — Anthony M. Assad. It was not immediately clear whether he had a lawyer.

    You know, I actually had written something similar when I was responding before going the cool "few words with pic" route. Too funny.

    anyone wearing ed hardy anything should just be killed. i hope this guy gets life and has to wear that shirt every day and night. i'm sure it's comfortable to sleep with rhinestones stabbing you in the back.

    Less than a minute of research should have told him the chips were worthless. This guy is Mensa material for sure.

    Avoid the injection, get the compression.
    I've always wondered...
    Ten, is that really your face behind the chip-glasses in your avatar?

    I've always like those chip-glasses, and the different versions of them through the years.
