2 arrested in counterfeit gaming tickets probe

Two Lake Charles residents are accused of theft after being arrested last week for allegedly redeeming counterfeit video gaming tickets.

Louisiana State Police troopers arrested Jennifer Stewart and Alisha Baudoin, both 33, of Lake Charles, on charges of  theft and monetary instrument abuse.

Bond was set for Stewart at $100,000 and $35,000 for Baudoin.

The investigation continues and officials say additional charges and arrests are likely.
