A man’s ex-girlfriend is now behind bars after she reportedly took items from him and would not return them.

Tasha Nicole Williams, 34, of the 600 block of Ceasar Road in Ringgold, was charged with theft of assets of the aged or disabled persons. Bond was set at $10,000.

Minden police chief Steve Cropper says in July, the victim filed a report with police, and the victim stated he was admitted into Minden Medical Center on July 2.

“His ex-girlfriend, Ms. Tasha Williams, was there,” Cropper said. “The victim asked Tasha to hold several items for him. Later, the victim tried to get his items back, but apparently Ms. Williams refused to give them back.”

Since the victim lives in Bienville Parish, he contacted authorities there, and they were able to get most of his items returned with the exception of some cash and medications.

“The victim claimed $900 in cash was in his wallet,” he said, “and the victim also stated he’d had several medications missing including 80 Percocet, 27 nitrofurantoin, and 27 dotropan pills.”

Cropper says the victim is a quadriplegic and unable to care for himself.

Charges were filed against Williams and a warrant for her arrest were obtained. The warrant was sent to Ringgold and Bienville authorities and Williams was picked up there.

She was brought to the Minden Police Department for booking and later transported to Bayou Dorcheat Correctional Center.
