Former officer arrested for failure to appear in court following fraud charges
BATON ROUGE - A former BRPD officer, arrested in 2015 for using a department-issued credit card to make more than $1,450 in unauthorized charges, has been arrested for failure to appear in court.
A Livingston Parish Sheriff's Office spokesperson says Christopher Guerra was rearrested recently.
Guerra was arrested in 2015 on charges of access device card fraud, following an investigation by the BRPD Financial Crimes Devision.
Detectives said Guerra was issued a Voyager FuelTrac card to be used to purchase fuel for his preassigned marked police unit at authorized refilling stations. Guerra continued to use the card for several months after resigning from his position.
Guerra used the card nearly 50 times, totaling around $1,454 in purchases at several gas stations, without authorization from BRPD.
