LAS VEGAS, Nv. - The suspect arrested in an armed robbery at the Bellagio casino and accused of celebrating after the heist with prostitutes and a spending spree on the Las Vegas Strip will appear in court Wednesday. The Clark County Detention Center website identified him Tuesday as 34-year-old Scott A. Carmitchel, formerly of Overland Park, KS. He is being held on $84,000 bail.
Detectives say he robbed a casino cashier of $43,500 at gunpoint Friday and later paid prostitutes at another hotel with money still bound in Bellagio wrappers. He was arrested Saturday on suspicion of battery, grand larceny, burglary and robbery with a deadly weapon.
Carmitchel violated his parole back in December after a conviction in Kansas for making a criminal threat. He had previously been convicted of battery of a law enforcement officer.
