The thieves stole an unspecified amount of cash, a firearm, and a cellphone from Bossier City, La., Boomtown Casino Hotel. The theft occurred after a clerk sent the three suspects to an occupied room by accident.
The trio had checked into the casino at about 5:20 pm on April 4, KTAL, a local TV station, reported. They were then given a key to the occupied room.
Instead of informing the front desk about the error, they stole the cash, a keyless entry device for a Jaguar, sifted through luggage, and an iPhone 11. The suspects then located the SUV in the casino lot. They used the remote key to enter the SUV and took more money and a handgun from the vehicle.
At about 9 pm that same night, they fled in a 2007 black Chevy Tahoe. They never bothered to check out of the casino hotel.
In a Facebook post, local authorities in Bossier City announced that they are on the lookout for the suspects. Two are women, and the third is a man.
