Police investigating Friday night robbery at Bellagio hotel-casino

Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- A robbery was reported Friday night at the Bellagio hotel-casino on the Las Vegas Strip.

Las Vegas police said a man walked into the casino and demanded cash from the casino cage. It happened around 8:30 p.m.

The man left with an undetermined amount of money. Police are still searching for clues.

No one was injured in the incident.

This is not the first time the Bellagio has been robbed. In 2011, Anthony Carleo stole $1.5 million in chips from a craps table. Two months later, he was arrested when he tried to sell those chips to an undercover officer.

Carleo pled guilty to the robbery and another one at the Suncoast. He is currently serving 9 to 27 years in prison for both crimes.
