Anthony Carleo, the 29-year-old judge’s son suspected of stealing $1.5
million worth of chips from the Bellagio during a brazen armed robbery,
expressed his desire to “come up with some very big money” at the very
casino he allegedly robbed days later, according to an arrest report
released Thursday.

Metro Police said Carleo proceeded to rob the casino Dec. 14, setting in
motion seven weeks of gambling, peddling chips and extended stays at the
Bellagio until his arrest Wednesday night on the casino floor.

The arrest followed an extensive investigation into the
headline-grabbing robbery at one of the Strip’s most recognizable

Carleo, the son of a Las Vegas Municipal Court Judge George Assad, was
arrested and booked on counts of robbery with the use of a deadly weapon
and burglary with use of a deadly weapon, police said. He was being held
without bail at the Clark County Detention Center.
