OPELOUSAS (AP) — State police have arrested a 43-year-old Carencro man for allegedly making a bomb threat at the Evangeline Downs Casino in Opelousas.

Troopers say agents were notified Tuesday night that a patron informed employees about an explosive device he allegedly left inside the casino.

The casino was evacuated and a systematic search was conducted. Troopers say no explosive devices were located.

Russell J. Cormier was booked Tuesday night with communication of a bomb threat.

It was unclear whether Cormier has an attorney.
