A Doyline woman who operated a cleaning service has been arrested by the Webster Parish Sheriff’s Office on warrants from Bossier City police for theft and forgery.
Kasey Alana Smith, 29, of the 300 block of Lakeview Drive, was arrested Friday, Nov. 20, and charged with forgery and theft.
During an interview with Webster Parish Detective Jennifer Ervin and Maj. Dustin Reynolds, she admitted to stealing a check and signing the victim’s name to it, according to the police report. Detectives say she admitted to taking a picture of the front and back of the check but not depositing it into her account. But it somehow ended up in her account, she told police.
She faces similar charges in Bossier City for stealing personal and financial information from multiple clients and the Bossier Sheriff-Police Financial Crimes Task Force is trying to find out if there are any additional victims.
Detectives secured warrants on multiple charges including identity theft, theft and forgery. Smith is accused of stealing personal and financial data, including checks and credit cards, over the past two months belonging to people who hired her to clean. Smith then used that information for financial gain.
The task force is asking residents who hired Smith in the past to review their financial records, including credit reports for any suspicious activity. Anyone who feels they could be a victim of Smith’s criminal activity is asked to call their respective law enforcement agency.
