BOSSIER PARISH, LA (KSLA) -

Bossier Parish Sheriff's Office is investigating a burglary at the Red River Casino in south Bossier. 

Investigators are looking for a suspect or suspects who entered the casino in the 7900 block of Barksdale Blvd. around 1:30 a.m. Friday. 

Red River Casino is one of three businesses at the Red River Travel Plaza. All three businesses had closed for the evening at the time of the burglary. 

The casino portion of the building remained closed Friday morning. 

There is no description of the people or person responsible.

The suspect(s) reportedly stole an undisclosed amount of cash.
