    Over the last couple of weeks someone has been circulating so-called BP oil claim forms in the Lake Charles area. While man, if not most medical claims associated with the Deepwater Horizon oil spill have been settled, someone is holding meetings around the Lake area trying to get people to sign up. But they're not too forthcoming when it comes to saying who they are or who they represent.

LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) -

A visit to the Calcasieu Correctional Center has turned into a short stay for a Lake Charles woman.

Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Kim Myers said Savannah S. Gardiner, 27, was arrested last week on an active warrant in connection with a 2012 incident.

Myers said Gardiner signed in to visit an inmate at the CCC on May 1. When Gardiner's name was run through the Sheriff's Office database, the warrant came up.

"In July 2012, deputies were dispatched to a local check cashing business," Myers said. "Deputies were advised that Gardiner attempted to cash a forged check worth $1,400."

Myers said Gardiner fled the scene before deputies arrived but she left her Louisiana identification card behind.

An arrest warrant on a charge of forgery was then issued for Gardiner but authorities were not able to locate her.

Myers said the investigation is ongoing and more arrests are possible.

Bond was set at $5,000.
