LAS VEGAS - The 29-year-old son of a local judge is scheduled to make his first court appearance since his arrest in an armed robbery that authorities say netted $1.5 million in casino chips from the Bellagio resort on the Las Vegas Strip.

Anthony Michael Carleo’s hearing Monday is before a Las Vegas justice of the peace on armed robbery and bur-glary charges in the Dec. 14 heist.

Carleo also uses the last name of his father, Las Vegas Municipal Court Judge George Assad.

Videos showed the motorcycle helmet-wearing robber waving a gun as he ran from the Bellagio.

Police say they can account for $1.2 million of the loot. They allege that Carleo gambled away hundreds of thou-sands of dollars and sold some high-value $25,000 chips after the gunpoint robbery.
