What is going on at Bellagio

Security guards are surrounding the poker room, a line of guards are blocking access to the valet area, and minutes earlier I saw 9 cop cars in a hurry to get to Bellagio.

Did the room get robbed again? Did something else happen? Anyone see anything?

That shows a picture of security blocking off the valet area.

Bellagio valet takes like 5 minutes to deliver each car. Horrible planning by robber to rely on carjacking from that spot.

Re: What is going on at Bellagio

In all seriousness, my guesses as to why Bellagio seems to get robbed a lot is a combo of:

1. North valet offers closest access to the freeway of any strip resort

2. Both cages (and craps pit) at Bellagio are close enough to north valet, but poker even more so

3. Bellagio is where criminals perceive more money to be, even though robbing any casino cage would get them plenty

4. Ocean’s Eleven, obv

Re: What is going on at Bellagio

Also, WTF was this idiot’s original escape plan if he was trying to carjack someone in north valet? Wait for an Uber?

He probably ordered Uber Pool to save a few bucks and it took longer to arrive.

And the people that rob the Bellagio tend to get caught.

I was wondering if the carjacking attempt was his original escape plan lol. I canít believe he tried to shoot it out with several cops. Even surrendering is a much better idea than that.

No news on who this guy was yet?

Saw an article that indicated it would be released once the family was notified.

For now I'll stick with the assumption that he fired first, but we all know (particularly with trigger-happy Metro PD) that's not a guarantee.

The stars would have had to align for Metro to fire first and miss him, and him be able to fire back and hit a cop center mass. The cop's vest might've saved his life.

Trigger happy? Phoenix has 11 OIS so far (thru Mar 14). I guess this includes MCSO, DPS and a couple of the 'burbs, as well. Still, 7-8 by one agency in the same time-frame.

Math checks out- Phoenix metro is a little over 2x the size of Vegas, and Vegas has had five OIS so far this year.

Agree on all counts. I've just trained myself to be skeptical when the only account out there is the one that came from the cops.

Re: What is going on at Bellagio

Career criminal. Likely same guy behind 2017 heist. Bad news for him that cops were already there for another incident. He probably convinced himself he was a dead man so he went down firing. Really an incredible job by those officers. Thank god nobody else (other than the officer with the bulletproof vest) was hurt.
