ATC office worker fired, arrested after thefts
BATON ROUGE - State Police said an Office of Alcohol and Tobacco Control employee was fired after an investigation into workplace thefts at the Baton Rouge office.
Troopers said Lindy Tullier, an ATC office worker, was arrested and accused of stealing cash from her co-workers' purses.
State Police said one of their civilian employees reported to a supervisor that she'd noticed money missing from her purse at least two different times. Detectives investigating the thefts said they found other workers believed they had been the victims of theft as well.
Troopers identified Tullier as a suspect and charged her, and ATC immediately fired her.
"These actions will not be tolerated and ATC will demand that full restitution be made to all parties who were victimized," said ATC Commissioner Troy Hebert.
ATC also began an internal investigation to see if any other money had been taken from the office.
