LAS VEGAS (AP) - Las Vegas police are looking for a 31-year-old Southern California man they believe sneaked into a restricted area of the Venetian resort and stole valuable casino chips.

Authorities say they've obtained an arrest warrant for Akingide Cole of Palmdale, Calif., after the chips were taken a little after 6 a.m. on Oct. 10.

Investigators say the man got into a closed area of the casino and took chips of different values. They say no weapon was involved, and the man didn't confront anyone during the incident.

Police describe the suspect as a light-skinned black man who's about 6 feet tall and weighs about 225 pounds. He last had a goatee and short dark hair in a semi-mohawk.

Police say he has a distinctive fibrous growth on his left earlobe.
