Bellagio armed robbery suspect Scott Alan Carmitchel was arrested by Las Vegas police this week during the Hard Rock Hotel and charged with battery, grand larceny, burglary, and robbery having a weapon that is deadly.

Carmitchel, 34, who comes from Kansas, includes a long criminal background, is accused of entering the Bellagio casino on the night of Friday, July 25 and robbing a cashier at gunpoint, prior to making off with $43,000. The cashier told police she feared for her life.

Legislation enforcement officers were led to a available space at the Hard Rock following a tip-off from a tourist who became suspicious of a man whom paid him $300 to hire a $405 space at the hotel. The suspect initially told officers his name was Scott Rice and claimed he had found a black colored bag full of cash into the Bellagio parking lot, with identification although he was unable to provide them.

He later on acknowledged it was his image on Bellagio surveillance footage, but denied any familiarity with the crime, claiming he had checked out the casino that night, but had no memory of what had taken place.
