    The library may be a tiny room inside the Calcasieu Parish School Board's technology building, but it's a small space creating big opportunities for students with disabilities.

SULPHUR, LA (KPLC) -

Authorities said they are looking for a 26-year-old Sulphur man who misrepresented himself during an arrest earlier this week.

Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Kim Myers said Jacob Lynn Hastings was arrested Monday on a charge of theft of $500 to $1,500.

Hastings, who was released Tuesday after posting a $3,500 bond, was accused of using a stolen casino rewards card to purchase over $540 worth of merchandise from casino stores.

Myers said that Hastings, who had no form of identification at the time of his arrest, told authorities he was Corey J. Barron, also of Sulphur.

"It was learned (Thursday) after the story was made public and his mugshot was shown on the local media outlets, the man who actually committed the crime is Hastings," Myers said.

Hastings will now be charged with theft over $500 and misrepresentation during booking.

"Officials at the Calcasieu Correctional Center are conducting an investigation into how Hastings was allowed to book in under false name," Myers said.

According to records from the CCC, Hastings was also arrested Oct. 18, 2013, on charges of simple burglary of an inhabited dwelling and theft over $1,500.
