Bellagio Get Robbed Again

From the LVRJ:
An armed robber escaped with tens of thousand of dollars from the Bellagio on Friday night, and Las Vegas police have asked for the public’s help finding a person of interest in the crime.
Las Vegas police responded to the casino about 8:30 p.m. and the man pointed a gun at a cashier and demanded money. He then ran from the casino on foot.
It’s unclear if the man had a vehicle.
The man was caught on video. He didn’t threaten anyone but the teller.
“Unfortunately the teller was pretty much traumatized by the whole thing,” said a police officer who requested anonymity. “It’s pretty horrific having a gun stuck in your face.”
Police don’t know the exact amount the man stole but estimated it at $30,000. A casino employee confirmed that a man robbed a cashier cage at gunpoint and he said the robber took about $50,000.
A hotel spokesperson said the Bellagio is cooperating with police, who did not provide any information Saturday morning.
As a result of the investigation, Metro’s robbery detectives identified 32-year-old Jesse Jones as a “person of interest” in the incident. Police described Jones as about 6 feet 2 inches tall and 215 pounds with a bald head and blue eyes. He has a tattoo above his eyes, across both eyebrows, that reads, “WHITE PRIDE.”
In old Vegas, this never would have happened:
