MISSISSIPPI WOMAN ARRESTED FOR FINANCIAL FRAUD

MISSISSIPPI WOMAN ARRESTED FOR FINANCIAL FRAUD

 

A Gulfport, Mississippi, woman was arrested by the Washington Parish Sheriff's Office on October 29 for numerous charges of financial fraud. Tiffany Lynn Clark, 31, was booked into the Washington Parish Jail on one count of theft, nine counts of forgery, nine counts of bank fraud, two counts of identity theft and three counts of monetary abuse. She remains in jail with her bond set at $30,000.

 

The investigation began with a response by Deputy Raymond Myers, II, to a Franklinton area business which reported someone trying to cash a counterfeit business check at a location in Bogalusa. The case was turned over to the detective division which was able to identify Clark as the suspect.

 

Clark was located in an area motel with a setup of printers, laptops and other equipment needed to produce counterfeit checks. She was in possession of identification of several persons, including social security numbers, dates of birth, addresses and some actual driver's licenses. The investigation revealed she was producing counterfeit checks on both Washington Parish and Mississippi businesses. In addition, she had opened credit card and bank accounts in the names of some of the victims.

 

Detective Cassard enlisted the assistance of the Louisiana Attorney General's office. Together, they were able to identify the various areas of fraud and develop adequate evidence for the criminal charges. The investigation continues and additional arrests are possible. Any business which has had dealings with Tiffany Lynn Clark is asked to contact Detective Raymond Myers at (985) 839-3434.

 

Sheriff Randy Seal commented. "This investigation reaches over state lines and there are likely other victims. Please contact us if you suspect you have been a victim of Clark. I am so thankful for the hard work of our patrol and detective divisions, particularly Detectives Chad Cassard and Raymond Myers."
