Las Vegas casino robber's luck runs out

An armed bandit has escaped on a motorbike after stealing, at least $1.5 million from a casino in Las Vegas - something normally only done in Hollywood movies.

The thief took chips from the Bellagio resort and he may have carried out a similar raid elsewhere, less than a week ago.

But he may not have thought his plan through, as Rajesh Mirchandani reports.
