BATON ROUGE - A woman is wanted by police after she managed to sneak her way into one of LSU's graduation ceremonies and took someone else's diploma.

According to LSU Police, 22-year-old Bianca White is accused of inserting herself into Friday's ceremony, alongside the graduating class of 2017, and walking across the stage inside the Pete Maravich Assembly Center. Police say White was involved in the entire graduation process and successfully took a purple diploma cover along with a diploma that belonged to another student. 

According to the arrest warrant, White inserted a forged diploma inside the cover, giving the appearance that she had earned a degree from LSU. 

Someone at the graduation later confronted White, where she allegedly admitted that she'd given the real diploma to another person. White was allowed to leave the PMAC, but walked away with the cover and fake diploma in-hand.

White is currently wanted on charges of theft and unlawful production, manufacture, distribution or possession of a fraudulent post-secondary education degree.
