ISLANDIA, N.Y. (1010 WINS) -- There was a gun scare at a casino on Long Island.

Suffolk County Police say a man smuggled an AR-15 rifle into Jake's 58 Casino And Hotel. A security manager was investigating a barking dog and came into 25-year-old Raymond Hansen's room. That's when police said he found a rifle and two magazines.

Authorities said he brought it in under his jacket, and it doesn't look like he planned to use it.

Hansen has been charged with criminal possession of a weapon.
