Crime Blotter Story of the Day

This was not a well thought out plan:
Las Vegas police have arrested a man for an alleged robbery at the Bellagio Casino that happened on Saturday night.

According to the police report, Michael Belton and another man walked up to a blackjack table and sprayed the people playing at the table with pepper spray. Belton then grabbed 23 $5,000 chips and tried to flee the scene.

He was apprehended by casino security and held until police arrived. The second man was able to escape.
Of all places to try this, Bellagio would not have been my first choice. It's one of the nicest places on the strip and the security there is as serious as it gets in Las Vegas.

I thought all those casinos were serious about their money.

I think the quickest way outside from the casino part of Bellagio is straight into the fountains.
