CALCASIEU PARISH, LA (KPLC) -

A 45-year-old instructor at a local driving school is accused of stalking and having inappropriate contact with a 15-year-old female student, authorities said.

The Calcasieu Parish Sheriff’s Office received a complaint on July 15 about Angel F. Owens, 45, of Sulphur.

Owens told detectives during a July 29 interview that she was obsessed with the victim and had been stalking her, said Kim Myers, Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office spokeswoman. Owens was arrested that day and charged with indecent behavior with a juvenile and stalking. Judge Michael Canaday set bond at $140,000 and signed a no-release order until a criminal stay-away order has been put in place.

KPLC interviewed Owens in June for a story about texting and driving. To see the interview, click HERE.

Myers said that Owens gave the girl an iPhone and told her to keep it hidden from her parents. Owens threatened to "make the victim's family disappear" if she did not accept the phone.

Owens insisted the girl call her "momma," and became extremely irate when she did not do so, Myers said. Owens also gave the girl a charm bracelet with “love momma” engraved.

Myers said that, between February and July 2016, there were approximately 12,200 text messages and 650 phone calls between Owens and the victim. Some of the messages included inappropriate sexual language, as well as multiple texts implying Owens had been driving by the girl’s home and stalking her. When the victim tried to get Owens to leave her alone, Owens threatened to kill herself.  

Myers asked anyone else who feels they were victimized by Owens to call Det. Sarah Stubbs at 337-491-3790.
