LAS VEGAS (KSNV MyNews3.com) — The suspect arrested in an armed robbery at the Bellagio casino and accused of celebrating after the heist with prostitutes and a spending spree on the Las Vegas Strip has refused to speak or open in eyes in court Wednesday.

Scott A. Carmitchel, 34, was bound and chained with a spit mask and forced into court for arraignment.

Carmitchel, a Kansas man with a criminal record, is being held on $84,000 bail.

Detectives say he robbed a casino cashier of $43,500 at gunpoint Friday and later paid prostitutes at another hotel with money still bound in Bellagio wrappers.

He was arrested Saturday on suspicion of battery, grand larceny, burglary and robbery with a deadly weapon.
