Sheriff's deputies are at the Commerce Casino tonight investigating reports of a possible robbery and kidnapping, authorities said.

The incident occurred about 8 p.m. Deputies are currently at the casino at 6131 Telegraph Road gathering information, the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department said.

One resident who lives near the casino told The Times that investigators have set up a command post at the scene and that a helicopter was flying overhead shining its lights as it apparently looked for suspects.

No further details were available.
