Kinder, LA (KPLC) - Several drivers are stranded near the Coushatta casino after reportedly getting gas at a CITGO gas station on U.S. Hwy 165.

One KPLC viewer tells us the station has since shut down the pumps.

Our call to the gas station went unanswered, but the Allen Parish Sheriff’s Office tells us they are looking into the incident.

Sheriff Hebert tells us at least six vehicles broke down and had to be towed.

Hebert also said his deputy is working to confirm that all the drivers came from the same gas station. No road blockages have been reported.

We reached out to the Louisiana Department of Agriculture and Forestry to see if they were investigating the incident, and we’re still awaiting more details. However, they did send us this video explaining exactly how the agency works with local gas stations.

We’ll continue to follow this story and report on developments as they come in.
