I don't think the DA/cops are going to hand over the letter (if they even found the original ones) and the stolen chips to Provo. Oceanspray25 emailed those pics to Provo.

Even allowing for the fact that drug-addled degenerate gamblers probably don't make great decisions, that report is still amazingly full of saturated fail. Good grief.

This post is an absolute classic.

He must have been absolutely stoned, or jonesing, when he made this post.

After reading the complete police report I reread this post and it brought to mind Jamie Gold. Partly because he was telling the truth when no one thought he would be...

Yes, the guy was just begging to be caught. Good work, Provo. Does anyone know where/how to access the police report on this?

Re: Cashing Stolen Bellagio Chips -Poker News

Sorry I missed the post with the police report. I read it carefully and am amazed at the investigation and actions of the authorities. It makes for FANTASTIC reading. It was like I was in on the action all the way. I come away with the following observations (duh).

Corleo must be totally mentally challenged by the addiction to Oxycontin judging the by massive amounts prescribed and received by him through his M.D.--who should be investigated himself! There is no way this guy was playing with a full deck. He left so many trails it shows he was a complete drug-induced idiot. I mean come on. Uses his own motorcycle. Didn't realize that an IP address from which he sent these emails could be traced. Immediately begins cashing in the chips the day after the robbery. I thought the perp would wait a long time before trying to cash them. He talked and informed others that he was the bad guy...wanting, I think, to be caught to embarrass his Father, a municipal court judge. BTW he must be a terrible poker player and should have read lesson threads on 2+2!

Since the Bellagio accepted the stolen chips, I assume they do not have any RFID in their chips. However, they may well have RFID and they accepted the chips to try to snare the stupid Corleo robber. Finally, what kind of idiot doesn't think he would be rather obvious walking through the Bellagio in a motorcycle suit plus full helmet...duhhhmmmmmbbb!

Anyway...the report was a good read. I think I should have been a law enforcement officer as I love trying to figure it all out. Must be why I love poker--analyzing how to win at poker!

Re: Cashing Stolen Bellagio Chips -Poker News

Wasn't the original point in this thread how someone could successfully cash all those chips (minus the $25k ones) without getting caught? And the guy posts in the thread and takes the worst method to try and cash them in and gets caught. Epic fail

the high denim chips do have RFID, but as with most RFID it isn't as capable as gps. Point being they can only scan like a bar code on a credit card to determine authenticity. Maybe even determine if the chip is lost in circulation and not checked out by the cage.. But the secondary market for them limits any positive ID of stolen chips.. Hence the interviews for unrecognized players cashing in cranberries (see salvation army guy).

The suspect told me that baking them in a microwave kills the RFID tag and renders the chip "unknown" to the casino. Not sure if accurate but it makes sense to me.

The suspect told me he broke open a chip and found a copper wire, or something of the like.

Re: Cashing Stolen Bellagio Chips -Poker News

Np. I hate reading news stories where all the details that matter are left out for confidentiality purposes or some b.s. of the like. Vegas PD outed me without warning so I'm an open book. Let the chips fall where they may. All evidence I have is my property.
