An employee in the St. Charles Parish Clerk of Court’s office was arrested last week and charged with stealing more than $600 and falsifying records, according to the St. Charles Parish Sheriff’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.
