Authorities are searching for a man who robbed a Bayou Blue truckstop casino at gunpoint right after he ‘disarmed' the casino's security guard on the wee hours of October 6, according to the Lafourche Parish Sheriff's Office.

The robbery happened shortly before 3:15am at the Big Wheels Travel Center and Casino on LA Highway 316 (just off U.S. 90), when a man wearing black clothes and a black ski mask went inside the casino and quickly snatched the gun from the guard.

He then forcibly brought the guard and a casino employee to an office area and demanded money.
The man fled the area with the stolen money worth several thousand dollars and also took with him the security guard's gun.

Authorities describe the suspect as a man standing around 5'6" to 5'8" tall, and weighing about 300 to 350 pounds. During the crime, he was wearing black pants, a black sweatshirt, a brown hat, black and white shoes, and a black backpack which seemed to be designed to carry a laptop device.

The suspect remains at large, so anyone with info regarding the robbery is asked to contact Crime Stoppers Bayou Region at 1-800-743-7433 or by texting "GIVEATIP" plus your message to 274637. Tipsters shall remain anonymous and could be eligible for a reward of up to $1,000 in cash if the info they share leads to an arrest.

regular news about oshrablenie about casino ... do not set a number of security cameras and really hard to find the culprit? I am always surprised by such careless criminals who do not think about the fact that they will be easy to catch ... but judging by the fact that this man is offering a reward like that could hide

Sadly, no plan can prevent a dumb person from doing the wrong thing in the wrong place at the wrong time. I hope local law enforcement officials will not have major problems in identifying and apprehending the suspect in this case.

being in a highway isnt the best place for a casino, in terms of security.
At least they have cameras, that may help catch the thief.
He left and took the guards gun. Why not taking the camera footage? Smile

Waaay too much casino robberies - or at least articles about casino roberies - coming up nowadays, to be honest either people are desperate economically or these casinos become underguarded over the years.

I think that all of kind of people can take part in this robbing "business"!it can be some small drug addicts or just people who steal and doing only that in life for big amounts!but we have also people who need to steal beacuse of economic problems!but every casino have insurance so its same for them will be robbed or not!
