Scott Montgomery robbed at Bellagio

Tags: bellagio, robbed, Scott Montgomery.
Posted on 12 October 2010 by "T".

According to Scott Montgomery's twitter, he was robbed at Bellagio in Las Vegas the other day. It all occurred in a bathroom during a tournament break. A person corned Montgomery and demand all his money or else he would be shot/stabbed. At first, he refused to give up his money, but when the man started to unwrap something in his hand, Montomery decided to hand over the $2k he had in his pocket.

Montgomery called for the security straight away but it took about 15 minutes before they showed up, and of course, the robber was long gone by that time. Scott Montgomery is very angry and disappointed with how the casino handled his case.

"Got mugged today at Bellagio. Black guy pulled a knife on me in the restroom. I gave him the $2k in my wallet and he left. 6:41 PM Oct 10th via web", Montgomery writes on his twitter.

"I called security, but they took like 15 mins so they didn't catch him. They are useless twits. Didn't even ask me to look at camera footage 6:43 PM Oct 10th via web"

"Security pretty much just said oh well, life sucks, have a nice day. I'm pretty annoyed. 6:44 PM Oct 10th via web"

"Bellagio gave me a buffet comp in return for being mugged. I lol'ed. I also busted in 27th. 18 paid 14 minutes ago via web."

LOL. What a softy.
With all that money the high rollers have, I think I know only few who do a decent sports.
Instead of rolling the dice at Bellagio 24/7, he should take some fighting lessions or atleast self defence or go to the gym to get his fat*ss in shape so next time someome starts "unwrapping SOMETHING" in his hand, he can broke his nose with his head or an elbow lol.

Instead of going to police he went to Twitter? LOL
 watoba12/10/2010 22:14:51 GMT
he must going to police sure but i think the security make a bad job. They must do there job so the players are feeling safe there and can not robbed or will you robbed in a casino and the security do nothing for you and then in a great one how bellagio

I'm always surprised when people seem surprised by the lack of efford of security/police for minor muggings. Maybe it's because i know about it too well lol. But seriously, in most places, for minor theft/muggings - without assault - security and police will basically do nothing except possibly detain suspect if they happen to run into them.

Fact is, there isn't time enough or resources to actually investigate this sort of thing. If it were a larger sum of money or if the victim is seriously assaulted, then they'll take it more seriously.

But crap like this happens constantly. People are just surprised when it happens to them and somehow suspect justice will occur and then are disappointed when the reality of the situation dawns on them.

Anyway, ul day.

This didn't happen at some slum in suburban area. This happened in high class hotel. So, yes, I am a bit surprised. Back in 2004 there was another attempt of robbery in Bellagio but the thieves' arses were kicked by a player.
 SuperNoob14/10/2010 11:13:49 GMT
he didna lose much money but if people keep on getting mugged in big casinos then people are gonna be more scared of losing money off tables than on them.
and im takin tht 15 min are surely exaggerated
 Sapoazul14/10/2010 11:59:04 GMT
Unbelievable! How the cassino cant offer secure playin to they players and customers. If the cassino was in Brazil, all right, this will be common, but not in the desenvolved country..
 JasonOost14/10/2010 12:33:44 GMT
OMG! Unbelievable that this is possible.
 Aggro66614/10/2010 16:37:33 GMT
very very strange, with so much security around in the Las Vegas Casinos, and even more Cams in any corner of the Hotels, Casinos and Streets...

But try to take some chips from the black jack table that are belonging to the bank or so, you will see, within 20 secs. there are at least 3 Security persons around you Smile

in Finland you need your ID first time when you visit in casino, they scan it and save it for safety issues. just thought that this standard is normal everywhere, especially in casino's pioneer city Las Vegas.. but maybe we have to again confess that.... ITS AMERICA!
 Mudadzija16/10/2010 18:14:43 GMT
I live in Serbia, a country many people consider Wild West third world country. But in the casino I visit you need to go through 3 rings of security, and leave your ID card the first time you come. Then you get a card with your picture which you need to show every time you come in. Every corner of the casino is covered with security cams. And this is not some extremely luxurious casino, there are tables with 40 euros buy in there.
So I suppose there are too many casinos in Nevada. They could not meet such standards with so many players. And most times nothing happens.
 oliver08229816/10/2010 18:32:56 GMT
what a shame... how could such a crime pass through 1 of the most prestigious hotels... tsk... tsk...
 Sherbert21/10/2010 01:25:55 GMT
It's hard to say what when down here. He may have been flashing his cash earlier while buying drinks or something. If a thief sees such a thing, it triggers off a mark/target alert. He then waits for his chance. Not saying he was flashing cash around. It may have been completely random. My first guess is someone knew he had some bank on him, or they would not have went to such risk in robbing him. You just don't rob some one in a public space to get 40 or 50 dollars. This is why I think somehow, someone knew he had a pocket full of money on him. Sad that this type of crime happens but it happens every day. This time it just happened to someone well known. Sad sad sad. Be careful out there fellow members and try not to carry big amounts of CASH unless it is absolutely needed. Sad
