Failed Robbery Attempt from Blackjack Table in Las Vegas 23.05.2012

Our world is filled with lazy people, dumb people and just plain criminals who try to get their hands on money they did not win or earned. Unfortunately this has been true ever since the beginning of time and still exists with us today. The latest example of such anti-social behavior happened this past Saturday at the Bellagio, one of the most famous hotel and casino resorts in Las Vegas and the world.

It all started when two idiots decided to rob a high-stakes blackjack table of the high-valued chips that are held on the table. They put on wigs and fake glasses and went into the Bellagio in Las Vegas and headed for the VIP blackjack tables. One of the men sprayed the blackjack dealer with pepper spray while his accomplice, Michael Belton attempted to snatch over 20 chips valued at $5,000 each.

Belton was jumped on by casino employees who did not waste time and wrestled him to the ground. At first Belton was fighting them back but after a short scuffle he gave up and surrendered. After the Bellagio’s security staff handed Belton to the police, Belton asked the officers how much jail time they think he will get.

His partner who is the one who sprayed the blackjack dealer with the pepper spray is still at large and the local police is looking for him. Belton claimed he did not know his partner in crime as the two met after Belton answered an ad looking for a person to handle car-repossessions in Las Vegas. When Belton arrived in Las Vegas, the person posting the job offer told him that he actually wants Belton to help another man rob the Bellagio and Belton agreed.
