Bellagio robber sentenced to 3-11 years behind bars

Anthony Carleo, who robbed Bellagio in Las Vegas last year and got away with $1,5 million in chips, got his sentence the other day. The American was found quilty of armed robbery and was sentenced to 3-11 years in prison. Caleo was arrested already in February, a few days after he had sold a cranberry (a $25k chip) to an undercover cop. At that time he was at Bellagio and gambled away chips from the robbery.

The maximum penalty for this crime is 12-30 years in prison, and because of this many think that he got away way with it too easy and that it might send out the wrong signals in Las Vegas, a town in which crime is getting worse every day. During the trial Anthony Carleo, whose father is a Las Vegas judge, apologized for the what he had done, both to Bellagio, to the judge and to his parents.

It took 3 minutes for Anthony Carleo to rob Bellagio of $1,5 million in chips. Below is a video that the New York Post released shortly after the armed robbery.

Boy, i really got find a way to go pass some days to Las Vegas in the near future. Having chips instead of coins in the pockets, entering to a restaurant and hear "sorry, we don't accept Casino X chips as a way of payment, only Casino Y and Z", it must be a great sensation. And those chips need to have some kind of security system. Never had thought of this, perhaps due to my lack of experience in playing poker at the casino: I bet that all casino have different chips, even if its only a recorded name at the chip, but in big world known casinos, the security should be just as tight as in the creation of paper money!

i wonder did his light sentence have anything to do with his father being a judge,like the old saying says"it's not what you know but who you know"

This was a really weird news when i first heard about it on the news, and i actually saw it after they got it...

It was pretty clear that he will h caught in vegas, there are a lot of cameras out there and it was impossible to get away with it... Thumbs Down

Just heard about a new casino robbering, but this went bad for the robber. It was a portuguese 75 year old game addicted player that went to a casino to rob it, but police end up shoting him down to death... It was somewhere in Europe, cant remember where, but its hardced to 3 to 11 uear to believe, when everybody says police are harder in USA, and the kid from the news published was sentenced to 3 to 11 years in jail and pt the hand on$1,5 million!

agree that 3-11 years is less than standard but i think its enough for1 robbery incident, hopefully he would have learnt his lesson by now.
