BCPD investigates robbery at Boomtown Casino Hotel


Bossier City police are investigating a robbery that occurred early Wednesday morning at the Boomtown Casino Hotel.

Officers responded to the scene in the 300 block of Riverside Drive just before 6 a.m. and were told by witnesses that a man had walked into the hotel lobby and approached the front desk before demanding money from the cash drawer. Witnesses told police the man had much of his face covered and did not show a weapon, but they believed he may have been armed due to the way he kept his hand in his pockets.

After taking an undisclosed amount of money from the cash drawer, the man fled out of the hotel toward Riverside Drive. Officers searched the area for about an hour with the assistance of police dogs but did not locate a suspect.

The man is described as a black male, around 6'2" to 6'4", dressed in dark clothing that included a hooded jacket.

Bossier Crime Stoppers is offering a reward of $435 for information that leads to an arrest in the case. Anyone with information is asked to call Bossier Crime Stoppers at (318) 424-4100. They can also submit a web or text tip to the Bossier Crime Stoppers web site.
