The Perils of Self Parking at Harrah's
» filed under Las Vegas tagged: harrahs self parking theft comments: 5
For many of us, the extent of damage we'll get from the parking garage is stepping in some bodily ejecta or the occasional door ding. Imagine coming back to the self park, head hazy and slit eyed from your 36 hour Vegas bender to find that your car, safely nestled in the perfect well lit parking space has been
broken into completely stripped - seats, airbags, 8 tracks, the whole schmear.
He had a soft top 2 seat performance car. Somebody slashed the top open, and opened his car. They then proceeded to spend at least thirty minutes, without any security catching on. They removed the 2 seats, which run at about 3k each, the airbags, blinker lights, and everything from the trunk. All while he was working there.
Adding insult to injury, security guards at Harrah's laughed at them when reporting the theft.
Obviously, theft takes place at all casino parking garages. Shortly after Wynn opened there was a rash of emblem thefts from all the BMW and Mercedes Benz' in the self park garage. The answer to this was putting two security guys on golf carts, constantly circling the parking garage levels.
I am surprised that there was no alarm on this car - a Honda S2000 - not that anyone would hear it or come to the rescue if it went off. I'm also surprised that no cars or security drove by in the half hour or so it would take to strip seats, airbags, turn signals and ransack the trunk.
Anyways, the moral of the story is if you have a rag top or a car you don't want jacked, use the valet.
