Calcasieu Parish Sheriff’s Office detectives received a complaint on June 14, 2021, from a local bank in Sulphur in reference to an employee, Barbara A. Chaisson, 55, 320 Cypress Street in Sulphur, committing fraud. During the investigation detectives we advised by bank personnel that Chaisson had been transferring money from numerous accounts and making withdrawals, without authorization. It was discovered Chaisson made over 30 unauthorized transactions from January 2019 to June 2021, totaling over $120,000.

A warrant was issued for Chaisson’s arrest on July 27, 2021. She was arrested later the same day and booked into the Calcasieu Correction Center and charged with 33 counts of computer fraud; 33 counts of bank fraud; and theft over $25,000.

She was released the following day on a $96,000 bond set by Judge Tony Fazzio.
