Las Vegas law enforcement have identified a man who allegedly stole $1.6 million worth of casino chips from the Venetian Las Vegas earlier this month.

He reportedly didn’t use any weapons during the robbery.

According to the Los Angeles Times, local police aren’t too worried about the high-denomination chips being cashed in by the suspect since casinos usually are aware of which players use them for gambling on the property.

The suspect is 31-year-old Akingide Cole.
