I think them moving to belts 14 and 16 are part of their plan to curb theft, as it's a hike from those belts to the doors to the parking deck. It's also part of the reason why when I bought my new checked bag, I made sure it was a roller bag.....

I do recall up until a few years ago, they would randomly check people in the baggage claim area to make sure the bag tag matched the receipt. I honestly don't see how baggage theft from the belts is that big of a problem at LAS. Even with a number of airlines now having their baggage claim at Terminal 3, it's still taking at least 15-20 minutes after arrival for bags to reach the belt (More than enough time for someone to get from their gate to the belt. At my home airport, my bag often beats me to the belt.). However, I do see lone bags on the belt, which may be a more likely target for theft.
