MARYLAND HEIGHTS (KMOX) – A woman walked into Harrah’s casino in Maryland Heights Thursday morning armed with a gas can.

Authorities say she began dumping the gas in what’s described as a small area of the casino. But she was stopped by officials before getting a chance to light it.

The gaming floor was shut-down for about 45 minutes while the mess was cleaned up.

The woman, who has not yet been publicly identified, was arrested several hours later.
