SHREVEPORT, La. (AP) - Louisiana State Police say a 35-year-old courier for Brinks Inc. is accused of stealing nearly $355,000 in deposits from the Horseshoe Casino.

Trooper Matt Harris says Anhkim Le of Shreveport was arrested Friday and booked into the Caddo Parish jail on a charge of felony theft. Online booking records show he remained in jail Sunday, with bond set at $400,000.

It was not clear whether he has an attorney who could comment.

Harris says the casino called state police on April 1 because a bank deposit was short. It turned out that a courier had picked up three bags for deposit, but one never got to the bank.

Harris says it held $284,279.86 cash, $29,000 in customer markers, $12,100 in credit card transactions, and $29,500 in personal checks.

He says troopers with a search warrant found all but about $3,600 of the cash in Le’s home. He says Le told investigators that he shredded and discarded the markers, checks and credit card slips.
