BOSSIER PARISH, LA (KSLA) - Bossier Parish Sheriff's Office deputies are investigating a theft and an attempted theft of two boat launch pay stations.

Deputies say the theft happened at the pay station box at the Parks Road boat launch on Cypress Black Bayou.

Park rangers reportedly told detectives Tuesday afternoon that the box was broken into and the cash inside was gone.

Visitors to the boat launches are required to pay a $3.00 launch fee by using the pay boxes. Park rangers check the launch sites to make sure cars have the pay stub to show the fee is paid.

Later that day, park rangers found a chain near a different pay station at the Highway 162 boat launch.

Investigators believe someone may have used the chain to break into the pay station at the Highway 162 boat launch but were not successful.

Anyone with information about the theft and the attempted theft at the boat launches is asked to call Bossier Crime Stoppers at 318-424-4100.
