LAS VEGAS (AP) - Las Vegas police are looking for a 31-year-old Southern California man they believe sneaked into a restricted area of the Venetian resort and stole $1.6 million in casino chips.
Authorities say they've obtained an arrest warrant for Akingide Cole of Palmdale, Calif., after the chips were taken a little after 6 a.m. on Oct. 10.
Investigators say the man got into a closed area of the casino and took chips of different values. They say no weapon was involved, and the man didn't confront anyone during the incident.
Police describe him as 6 feet tall and weighing about 225 pounds. He last had a goatee and short dark hair in a semi-mohawk. Police also say he has a distinctive fibrous growth on his left earlobe.
