Bellagio is a casino, resort, luxury hotel and resort on the Las Vegas Strip in Paradise, Nevada. No one was injured during the daring heist.

Police said Saturday they believe at least three people entered the store. "No shooting", a police spokesman said in a text to Reuters. The suspects tried to drive away but their auto wouldn't start so they ran on foot and tried to carjack a driver before running as the carjacking attempt failed, the Sun reported. The Bellagio houses other high-end jewelry stores, including Tiffany and Omega.
