Eunice man arrested following robbery of Bayou Gold Casino

A 32-year-old Eunice man was arrested Saturday afternoon after the Bayou Gold Casino in Eunice was robbed.

During the robbery of the casino, $859 in cash was stolen, as well as the cell phone of the employee manning the cash register and a business phone used by the casino. 

When police responded to the casino, they obtained a description of the suspect from the employee and viewed surveillance footage of the event.

The suspect was spotted about two blocks away from the casino and because he matched the description given to police, they chased him on foot. He was arrested behind a residence in the 700 block of Carron Street, which allegedly belongs to his parents.

The man was taken to Eunice City Jail pending charges of resisting an officer with violence and armed robbery.

One thing we have noticed in coverage of this robbery is that if a weapon was indeed used, which would merit the charge of armed robbery, that fact has not been publicized.

We also thought it was interesting that none of the items taken in the robbery were found on the man's person. It does not sound as though there was much time between the robbery and this man's arrest. That begs the question: If this man did rob the casino, what happened to all the things that were taken in the small window of time between the robbery and his arrest?

We commend police officers for working with expediency and a sense of urgency, because time is often of the essence when it comes to investigating alleged crimes, but it is important that accuracy and attention to detail not be compromised. If they are, innocent individuals can sometimes be unjustly ensnared in a hasty attempt to rectify a wrong.
