BILOXI, MS (WLOX) -

A Biloxi man is in hot water with authorities after allegedly burglarizing a hotel room at the IP Casino. Sgt. Donnie Dobbs said Marquel Butler, 26, was arrested and charged with the burglary on Saturday.

Dobbs said the Biloxi Police Department worked with the IP Casino Security and Surveillance Department to identify Butler as a suspect in the crime. Officials said surveillance footage showed Butler entering a hotel through an unlocked door.

Dobbs said Butler took a Coach purse, cash and other personal items from the room.

Butler was held at the Harrison County Jail on a $10,000 bond.
