LAS VEGAS, Dec. 22 (UPI) -- A professional gambler who uses the name "Robin Hood 702" is offering a $50,000 reward for the return of $1.5 million in chips stolen from a Las Vegas casino.

The high stakes blackjack player, who operates anonymously under the "Robin Hood 702" moniker to use his winnings to help families with debt, said he is offering the reward for the return of the chips to the Bellagio and the arrest and conviction of the helmeted motorcyclist who produced a gun at the casino Dec. 14. The thief fled on a motorcycle with chips from a craps table in denominations as high as $25,000, the Las Vegas Sun reported Wednesday.

"I'm just trying to find this guy and stop any copycats," Robin Hood said. "If the Bellagio was hit, the Palazzo could be hit, the Venetian, the MGM Grand ... it could be every casino. This guy has to be apprehended quickly."

Police said the same suspect is also believed to be behind the Dec. 9 robbery of less than $20,000 from the Suncoast casino.
