The Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office has arrested the man accused of scamming local businesses.

Sheriff's Office officials said Friday that Michael Ledell Derrick, 49, was wanted for using a fake name to scam businesses, telling them he was selling sandwiches for a fundraiser. He asked victims to pay for the sandwiches up front with promises that he would deliver them later.

Derrick turned himself in at the Sheriff's Office at 8:25 p.m. on Saturday, April 28, according to the booking report at Calcasieu Correctional Center.

Derrick was charged with theft less than $1,000 and is being held on an in-state detainer. Bond is set at $5,000.
