A man was arrested on suspicion of stealing a bag containing more than $60,000 in casino chips, police said.

Clayton Bollier, 28, was arrested Monday and faces a charge of felony theft.

On June 7, video surveillance from the Bellagio showed Bollier pick up a bag that was left on a slot machine. The victim said he was in town for the World Series of Poker, according to a Metropolitan Police Department arrest report.

On Monday, Bollier was recognized by Mandalay Bay security after Bollier trespassed.

Police said the bag contained $61,000 in casino chips.

Bollier remained in custody on $2,000 bail as of late Wednesday. He is due in court on Thursday.
