Las Vegas Metropolitan Police officers are investigating a robbery at the Bellagio on the Las Vegas Strip Tuesday. "We're following those leads", said Capt. John Pelletier of the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police.

"Whatever amount of cash he got is not enough to face a lifetime in prison", Pelletier said.

Pelletier said the robber parked a auto at the Bellagio valet.

There were witnesses to the robbery, including actor James Woods, who tweeted about it shortly after it happened.

"@Bellagio staff were fantastic".

The gunman fled in a silver Chevrolet Cruze with the Nevada license plate number 37D147.

Police in Las Vegas say they are looking for an armed suspect who fled from the Bellagio casino-resort after he demanded money from a cashier area.

Actor James Woods tweeted he was playing poker there at the time and didn't realize what was happening.

But that person was said to not have cooperated with the suspect and helped police instead.

Woods said the "excellent staff" were "cool under pressure".

The Bellagio also was the scene of a daring robbery in 2010, when Anthony Carleo stole $1.5 million in chips from the craps pit.

Bellagio was at the center of one of the most famous fictional heists. The crew played by a big-name cast - including George Clooney, Brad Pitt and Matt Damon - aimed to rob the Bellagio, the Mirage and the MGM Grand.
