in room safe

Had 9 day stay recently. 3 at Bellagio,3 at Ceasars,3 at Aria. On my trips I take bank envelopes and write date and amount on each . First 3 days at BellagioI kept money on me,also day 1 at ceasars. Then put in safe last 2 days at Ceasars and all 3 at Aria.

Never looked in envelopes until home for 8 days as I never touched the envelopes for last 4 days .

When looking the envelopes where ALL short $300, only possible reason some one got into safe at Ceasars or Aria. I know maittnence workers have pass code to open locked safes.

Since It was not noticed until home no reason to report it as othe posters have said missing things from room safes or not covered by casino with no proof.

Just thought I would pass this on, myself I will NEVER use a room safe again

Thank you for the reminder. In recent years, I NEVER use a room safe for storing money.

The postings here at TA are excellent reminders. I thank all OP for sharing their experiences.

Thank you. As we all know, unlike criminals elsewhere that'll just go make a quick grab of stuff out in the open, criminals in Vegas take the take to meticulously go thru people's safes, counting the money and deciding what to take.

And we're glad to know that you managed to get home and not even care about that money for another 8 days.

Struggling with the motives of a thief who doesn't want all of the money. Let me go to to the trouble of entering the room, entering the safe, going in to different envelopes...but leaving money behind. If I'm a thief, what have I gained by doing that?

Of course, if I'm a traveling companion, spouse, "friend" or whatever...that's different. They would just take "some" of the money in hopes the owner might not even notice.

Here we go again. Let's all assume that the OP (or someone they they traveled with) stole the money and is lying. What is to be gained from posting on this board, other than to try to share his learnings with everyone else?

Time for all of the grumpy "experts" to retire from this board.
