LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) - The Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office arrested a woman on Wednesday, July 21 at a local convenience store in Westlake after an investigation into possible forgery.

On July 19, a deputy was dispatched to a business on Sampson Street in Westlake in reference to theft of checks.

The deputy spoke to someone at the business who said that ever since April of this year, 48-year-old Tena Cormier of Moss Bluff - a family member of the individual - had been stealing checks, forging her name before cashing them. The forged checks reportedly totaled more than $600.

Cormier was located at a convenience store in Westlake on July 21. She was questioned by a detective, and allegedly confirmed to stealing the checks and forging them.

Cormier was arrested and booked into the Calcasieu Correctional Center. She was charged with bank fraud, exploitation of the infirmed/elderly, and 34 counts of forgery.

A judge set her bond at $15,000.
