We reported that in January 2020, Louisiana State Police Alexandria Field Office was contacted by officials of the Town of Anacoco to investigate discrepancies discovered during an internal audit.

The investigation revealed that Shaunda L. Pridgen, 48, former Town Clerk in the Town of Anacoco, misappropriated approximately $71,000.00 of town funds.

A warrant was obtained and she was arrested and booked into the Vernon Parish Detention Center yesterday and charged with 49 counts misdemeanor theft, 3 counts felony theft, 22 counts public payroll fraud, 58 counts forgery, and malfeasance in office.
