i was playing craps at Aria 2 days ago. I played a 10 dollar two way bet on the numbers up top (all small, all big, and all the numbers). Well, 10 minutes later, I rolled an 11, knocking off the last number I needed for all the numbers. All told it paid me, and the dealers, over $1,000. I stuck most of the chips in my pocket and continued to play for a little bit. A while later, I was down a couple hundred from my high point. I took the high denomination chips out of my pocket and put them in the chip tray since I was gonna have the boxman break it down. 5 minutes after this, my high denomination chips are missing out of the chip tray. I told the boxman, and he and the stickman looked on the floor, nothing there, nothing in my pockets. He picked up the phone and called up security to help out. About 5 minutes later, a plain clothes security guys pulls the lady next to me away from the table a couple feet, and tells her that stealing that much in chips is a felony and that she needs to give it back or she'll be arrested. She vehemently denies it, and he tells me that they are taking her downstairs to talk to her and to sit tight. At this point I'm sitting at the closest blackjack table (not playing), another security person asks me to follow him downstairs. He tells me that the reviewed the footage, and they were able to see, clear as day, her reaching over into my tray while I was throwing the dice and stealing $850 in chips (I asked to see the footage but they said they could not since they were not allowed to show the public the intricate details of their security room or measures...whatever). He said the police were coming, and maybe an hour or so later, they came, I gave my statement, and security showed the cop the footage. The cop told me she was going to jail, and she was going to be taken to a hospital to be strip searched as well since they weren't allowed to do that. I gave him my number, he gave me a case number and told me he'd call the next day, and that was that. It's two days later and I haven't heard back yet. I called the number he gave me and left a message today, but I still haven't heard back. I asked the plain clothes security person if Aria was going to give me $850 in chips that were stolen, but he said something to the effect that they were my property, in my possession, so it was my responsibility to take care of then. I agree to this to a degree, but not completely. If I had realized 1 hour later that my chips were taken, and the chick had already left the hotel, then I'd be more "OK" with this. But I mean I immediately noticed my chips were gone, I did the right thing by notifying the boxman, and security even said they caught her on tape taking my chips. Am I S.O.L? I'm not sure what to expect at this point.....I feel like security and the thousands of camera's are not only supposed to protect the casino, but the players as well. This sucks.
