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.

    Our Tuesday is off to a hot start. There has been lots of sunshine with a few small showers early this morning. There is a cold front that will push into Southwest Louisiana today. This will slowly move into our direction. Therefore, until the front arrives, it will be very hot. It will likely feel like 100-108 degrees. There will also be a few showers along I-10 this afternoon. Overnight, it will be mostly cloudy. I do not expect any more rain. It will be very warm and muggy.
