Rio Chip Robbery

A fake-mustached man robbed the Rio Casino in Las Vegas out of $36,000 in chips just weeks after the alleged infamous Bellagio chip robber was arrested.

Authorities say that the man entered the Rio Casino Thursday morning wearing a fedora, sun glasses and fake mustache.  He pulled out a gun after a dealer attempted to stop the holdup.  The robber escaped via a taxi cab.

During the ensuing weeks after the Bellagio chip robbery, experts noted that the $1.5 million in chips stolen were essentially worthless since they contained tracking mechanisms and could not be turned in without suspicion.  Anthony Carleo, the son of a Las Vegas Municipal Judge, was ultimately arrested in connection with the brazen crime after trying to sell the chips to an undercover officer. 

The Rio Hotel is owned by Caesar’s Entertainment, parent company of the World Series of Poker.
