Danny Roy Salazar, 44, had a pattern of wearing a wrist band, occasionally with a clipboard and entering through the rear of the entrances of hotels, police said, according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal.

Salazar allegedly broken into the Rio, Westgate and the Caesars Palace between Jan. 13 and 8 June, the report said, citing a criminal complaint.

“When you know the language, know the lingo and look, as you can hear, you can include,” Douglas Florence, a former security analyst, told the Review-Journal about the delivery driver disguise.

The suspect is accused of stealing mattresses, beauty products, furniture, and various kinds of electronics, such as an iPad, according to the complaint.

Police believe he stole $86,000 Isuzu Penske truck six months ago from outside a hotel on the Strip, the report said. An actual delivery driver who rented the truck was reportedly turning left.

Salazar is charged with six counts each of burglary and grand larceny of property with a value of more than $3,500, the Review-Journal. He remained in the Clark County Detention Center on $ 120,000 bail.
