Actor James Woods tweets about Bellagio poker cage robbery


"And whatever amount of money he got is not enough for a lifetime in prison". South, on reports of the robbery, Metropolitan Police Department officer Jay Rivera said.

He said the robber committed the crime alone, but also said another person accompanied him in a vehicle.

Also on the scene was actor James Woods who happened to be inside the Bellagio during the robbery and offered on-the-scene tweets at the time.

He added that the staff of the Bellagio "were fantastic".

As mentioned, Capt. Pelletier said that he is confident that investigators have enough clues when combining security video, eye witness accounts, the information about the vehicle, and more, that the suspect will be apprehended. They surrendered the money quietly, so no customers would get hurt. "We're following those leads", said Capt. John Pelletier of the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police. Nobody even realized it was happening.

The suspect approached the poker cage and demanded an unspecified amount of money.

Woods said the "excellent staff" were "cool under pressure".

He then fled from that area in a Chevy Cruze with Nevada plates on Flamingo Road. The crew played by a big-name cast - including George Clooney, Brad Pitt and Matt Damon - aimed to rob the Bellagio, the Mirage and the MGM Grand.
