A former St. Tammany Parish Sheriff’s Office employee was arrested today (December 2) in connection with a fraudulent check investigation.
Carri Artigue, a former employee in the STPSO Occupational Licensing Department, was arrested Friday for one count each of Bank Fraud, Monetary Instrument Abuse and Misdemeanor Money Laundering. She will be booked into the St. Tammany Parish Correctional Center.
Artigue has been employed with the St. Tammany Parish Sheriff’s Office since 2009, and her crimes were in no way connected to her employment with the agency and did not involve Sheriff’s Office funds.
“I hold all of our employees to the highest standard. When a public servant breaks the law, that individual must face the consequences,” said Sheriff Randy Smith said.
