NEW ORLEANS - The U.S. Attorney's Office in New Orleans has filed a one-count bill of information charging a 58-year-old Waggaman woman with wire fraud.

U.S. Attorney Kenneth Polite said in a news release Friday that Delores Trouillet was employed by a carpet, flooring, and drapery sales and installation company headquartered in Gretna, where she served as a bookkeeper.

The bill of information alleges that Trouillet had access to the company's bank accounts, including the ability to conduct wire transfers.

Polite says Trouillet used her access to generate checks to pay her personal expenses.

Prosecutors say Trouillet also added money to her biweekly payroll in excess of her agreed upon salary.
