Suspected serial con artist with local ties arrested again

Jamie Brown

A suspected serial con artist was recently arrested after she once again pretended to be a Walmart manager in order to steal cash.

Jamie Brown, 38, is accused of pretending to be a Beltline Walmart manager on July 24 and convincing a new employee to hand her cash. Alabama’s Mobile Police said that Brown told the new employee she was doing a money drop and needed all the large bills in the employee’s drawer. Police said that Brown walked out of the store after she was given the cash. She was arrested two days later.

This is not the first time allegations of this nature have come against Brown, who is from Thibodaux. She currently has a warrant out of Scott County, Mississippi for grand larceny.

In 2018, Hammond Police put out a be on the lookout for a woman pretending to be a manager at a Walmart there. Police said she cleaned out a cashier after asking for the cash to make a deposit and then drove away with the money.

In 2019, St. Charles Parish Sheriff’s Office detectives said Brown performed the same con locally at the Boutte Walmart. A month later in St. Mary Parish, investigators said Brown stole $3,000 through a scam at a store there.

At the time of the felony theft investigation in St. Charles Parish, St. Charles Parish Sheriff Greg Champagne said Brown approached a cashier on Oct. 20, 2019 and identified herself as a store manager.

“Brown then instructed the cashier to perform a till drop, which is a common procedure,” Champagne said. “The cashier then relinquished a large sum of money to Brown before Brown fled the store.”

Brown has turned herself in to St. Charles Parish authorities in 2019 and was arrested accordingly.
