Well, He Probably Didn't Open A Roth IRA

From the LVRJ:
After saying he found a black bag filled with cash, the man charged with robbing the Bellagio Friday night blew through $10,000 on a room at the Hard Rock resort, shopping at the Forum Shops at Caesars Palace and four hookers for “socializing,” according to his arrest report.
The man, who was not officially identified, denied he robbed the Bellagio at gunpoint of $43,500 cash and then told detectives he “was smoking too much I guess,” but wouldn’t say what he was smoking.
He told investigators his name was Scott Rice of Kansas, but police did not believe him because he had no official identification to support his claim. He was arrested Saturday night after a valley-wide manhunt and is being held at the Clark County Detention Center without bail.
The robbery happened about 8:30 p.m. Friday when a man walked up to a Bellagio cashier’s cage, pulled a gun out of his backpack and demanded money from a female clerk. The clerk later complained of chest pains and was checked out by paramedics, but was not taken to a hospital.
The man identified as John Doe on Saturday paid a tourist $300 to rent him a $400 room at the Hard Rock Hotel, according to his arrest report.
The tourist then notified police, who went to the resort located nearly two miles from the Bellagio. Investigators began to watch the room via security surveillance and soon detained for questioning four prostitutes who left the room, two of whom carried wads of cash bound by labels that read “Bellagio Count Team.”  http://www.reviewjournal.com/news/police-bellagio-robber-used-cash-hookers-clothes
If I had just robbed the Bellagio, I would have bought a car or a plane ticket and got the hell out of Vegas.
To me, it looks like the guy knew he was going to be busted so he went out in style.
On a related note, TV station Fox 5, on their 11:00 PM news, called the hookers "adult entertainers".  Umm, ok.
