Las Vegas police on Wednesday released surveillance camera images of a gunman who robbed a cashier cage at the Bellagio Hotel and Casino the day before. The employees complied with the suspect's demands and handed him an undetermined amount of money.

Poker aficionado and not-retired actor James Woods was playing poker at the Bellagio at the time and was impressed with how everything was handled. South, on reports of the robbery, Metropolitan Police Department officer Jay Rivera said.

"@Bellagio staff were fantastic".

A man was in the silver Chevy sedan (Nevada plates 37D147) during the robbery, but Capt. Pelletier told the press that it is believed that the man was being held against his will and was not an accomplice.

And while officers were soon on the scene, the suspect had already gotten away. Nobody even realized it was happening.

An MGM Resorts International spokeswoman Debra DeShong said resort officials are working with police as the robbery is being investigated. "Excellent staff, cool under pressure", Woods tweeted.

"So we are playing poker at the @BellagioPoker and a guy walks up with a gun and robs the cage thirty feet from us ten minutes ago", Woods tweeted.

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

The Bellagio was the site of one of the most famous fictional heists in movie history, as seen in the 2001 film "Ocean's Eleven."
