Parish employee charged with theft from clerk’s office
Kerri H. Breaux, 42, of 150 Birch St. in Luling, was booked with filing false public records and theft of goods, $500-$1,500.
According to authorities, Breaux, who has worked in the clerk’s office for more than 16 years, stole $649.25 over the course of several months. The theft was discovered by a co-worker when Breaux was out of the office, according to spokesman Sgt. Dwayne LaGrange.
LaGrange said that on at least seven occasions, Breaux recorded a false amount of fees collected and kept the difference.
He added that investigators are combing through records to determine whether the alleged theft had been going on longer than the last few months.
