Housekeeper faces financial crime charges after stealing from clients
BOSSIER PARISH - Sheriff’s deputies in Bossier Parish say a woman who operated a cleaning service will face criminal charges after she was accused of stealing personal and financial information from multiple clients.
Detectives with the Bossier Sheriff-Police Financial Crimes Task Force say they have secured arrested warrants for 29-year-old Kasey Smith, a Webster Parish resident, on multiple charges including identity theft, forgery and theft.
Smith is accused of stealing personal and financial data, including checks and credit cards, over the past two months from people who hired her to work as cleaning staff. KTBS-TV reports the woman used that information for financial gain. She is already incarcerated in Webster Parish for a similar crime.
