Baton Rouge Business Woman Arrested By Washington Parish Sheriff's Office

On January 22, 2016, Washington Parish Sheriff’s Office investigators arrested a Baton Rouge business woman for issuing worthless checks in the amount of $27,000 to Washington Parish businesses.

 Eleanor G. Collins, 47, a resident of 18555 Surrey Court in Baton Rouge was arrested and transported to the Washington Parish Jail where she was booked on one count of issuing worthless checks.  Her bond was set at $5,000.   Collins met the conditions of her bond and was released on January 23.

 Collins works in the fuel sales and distribution business.  She purchased fuel from local distributors with worthless checks and then resold the fuel to other businesses.

 Sheriff Randy Seal commented on the arrest.  “I congratulate our investigators for tracking down Collins in Baton Rouge and making the arrest.   Our officers work hard to protect citizens and businesses in Washington Parish and will always be on the alert for those who steal from others.  I appreciate all that they do.”
