South Bossier casino burglary suspect sought


Detectives with the Bossier Sheriff’s Office are asking the public’s help in identifying a female suspect who stole a large sum of money from a south Bossier casino around lunchtime on April 23.

Surveillance video at Red River South Casino, located at 7980 Barksdale Blvd./Highway 71, shows a female suspect entering the casino around 11:21 a.m. and departing ten minutes later with the cash.  When she entered the casino, she walked around, played poker on a couple of machines while she smoked a cigarette.  She was the only patron in the casino, and a short time later, she is seen on surveillance video placing latex gloves on her hands and uses a key to enter the casino office.
