Ex-employee accused of $175K theft from Louisiana nonprofit
LAKE CHARLES, La. (AP) — A 31-year-old Louisiana woman is accused of stealing more than $175,000 from the local nonprofit she was working for, the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff’s Office said Wednesday.
A news release said Meaghan J. Boudreaux of Sulphur transferred $169,000 from the organization’s account to her personal account between January 2019 and November 2020, and also added herself to the organization’s insurance plans without having premiums deducted from her pay.
The sheriff’s office said it began investigating Dec. 10, after the organization filed a complaint saying that an auditor had found questionable transactions after Boudreaux stopped reporting to work.
She turned herself in on Dec. 21, was arrested on a charge of theft of at least $25,000, and was released on $50,000 bond, the statement said.
Sheriff’s office spokeswoman Kayla Vincent says she does not know whether Boudreaux has an attorney who could speak for her. An online search did not turn up a phone number for Boudreaux at the address given by the sheriff’s office. A text message requesting comment from a Meaghan Boudreaux at a different address in Sulphur was not immediately answered.
