Whoa! James Woods was 30 feet away from armed robbery in Vegas’ Bellagio casino … see dramatic tweets

Police are searching for an armed, wig-wearing man who robbed a Las Vegas casino in front of guests including James Woods.

The suspect, wearing glasses, a blonde wig and a partial covering on his face, pulled a gun on clerks in the cashier cage at the Bellagio Hotel and Casino Tuesday afternoon, the Las Vegas Sun reported.

Casino employees complied and handed over an undisclosed amount of cash to the man who fled in a silver Chevrolet Cruze he had parked using the valet service. Police revealed later that the car had been recovered.

Actor James Woods witnessed the drama unfold along with other Bellagio guests and tweeted about the experience moments later.

The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department is on the hunt for the man whose image was captured by surveillance cameras.

The white male had his face “partially masked or bandaged” and was “armed with a small-frame, black gun,” according to the Sun.  Metro Captian John Pelletier is “comfortable and confident” that the suspect, believed to have acted alone, will be caught.

Another person, who did not participate in the robbery but was brought to the casino apparently against their will, was cooperating with the police, according to Pelletier, the Sun reported.

“Those who commit crimes like this on the Strip will be hunted down and whatever amount of cash he got is not enough to face a lifetime in prison,” Pelletier said.

The Bellagio was featured in the 2001 film “Ocean’s Eleven” which starred George Clooney, Brad Pitt and others pulling off a mega-million dollar heist at the casino.

Twitter users reacted to Woods’ tweets and the dramatic incident.
