According to St. Mary Parish Sheriff Mark Hebert, during the last 24 hour reporting period the Sheriff's Office responded to 29 complaints and reports the following arrests:
Louie Barnett, Jr., 50, 10909 Highway 87 Jeanerette, LA was arrested on February 25, 2013 at 9:06 am on a warrant for theft by fraud (over $1500). Barnett turned himself in to the St. Mary Parish Sheriff's Office in Franklin after learning of the warrant for his arrest. On February 15, 2013 a detective began an investigation into a complaint of internet fraud. The victim stated that she answered an ad via Craigslist to provide freelance work for a subject claiming to be a movie producer. The subject provided the victim with a check in advance for her services. The subject requested that the check be cashed and that a portion of the funds be wired to him. The victim wired $3,800. About a week later the victim was notified by her bank that the check had not cleared.
