Man arrested for $1.5m Vegas heist

A man has been arrested after a robber brazenly seized $1.5m (£930,000) in high-value casino chips from the upmarket Bellagio resort on the Las Vegas Strip.

Anthony Carleo (29), a bankrupt real estate broker, is being held on charges of armed robbery and burglary.

Police claim that Mr Carleo was the motorcycle-helmeted robber who walked up to a craps table with a pistol, grabbed casino chips worth from $100 to $25,000 each and made off on a motorcycle on December 14.
