Woman accused of stealing money from elderly man
THIBODAUX (AP) — Lafourche Parish sheriff’s deputies say Thibodaux woman has been arrested in the alleged theft of more than $12,000 from an elderly man.
Susan Arcement, 44, faces over 40 felony counts.
Earlier this month, deputies say a man in his 70s reported several checks totaling over $12,000 were illegally written from his bank account with a forged signature during March.
Deputies said they learned 21 checks had been stolen and used, and many were allegedly written to Arcement.
She was arrested Thursday during a traffic stop in Thibodaux. She was booked on warrants for 21 counts of exploitation of the infirmed and 21 counts of forgery.
Arcement is being held on a $30,000 bond in the parish jail.
