Bellagio robbery results in $1.5M in chips stolen by armed bandit – CSMonitor.com: “Absher wouldn’t say if MGM Resorts properties are among Las Vegas casinos that embed radio frequency devices in chips. But police will be keeping a close eye on cashier cages in case someone shows up with a stack of $25,000 chips.
‘We have safeguards in place,’ police Officer Barbara Morgan said.
The robbery had the makings of a scene straight out of a Hollywood caper. Police say a man wearing a jumpsuit and a motorcycle helmet with white stripes walked into the casino with a gun, robbed a craps table then sped away on a motorcycle in the dead of night.”
