Be it cash, casino chips or something else, stealing can absolutely get you into trouble, especially if you stole that something from a casino, that is.
An employee at the posh Bellagio casino and resort located in the Las Vegas strip was accused of stealing 25 lobster tails worth exactly $1,875, and for that, he was arrested on Monday early morning.
Metro Police say that on Sunday night, hotel security detained Alex Hernandez, who works as a chef at the establishment, after being caught putting lobster in his backpack and trying to walk out a back door. They kept him under watch until police arrived and took him into their custody early Monday.
Jail records show that Alex Hernandez, age 49, faces one count of embezzlement.
He is being held at the Clark County Detention Center and his bail is set at $5,000.
