BATON ROUGE - Police arrested an LSU student worker after they said she filed forged timesheets with the university chemistry department, which she used to work for.
According to an arrest affidavit, Gabrielle Perry forged her research mentor's signature on time sheets for more than a year. Police said she got nearly $9,000 from the department.
Police said Perry's mentor thought she left the program in July 2012. She stopped receiving paychecks in December 2013.
Perry is charged with 27 counts of payroll fraud, one for each paycheck she signed for.
