The owner of a Mandeville-area business has been booked into the St. Tammany Parish Jail after she bilked would-be customers out of thousands of dollars. 

The St. Tammany Parish Sheriff’s Office began investigating Danielle Gaspard, owner of Belissimo Interior Design Build, in early February after numerous residents reported they had paid her money to complete jobs which were either not started or not completed.

Gaspard (DOB 11/29/1984) of Ponchatoula was booked into the St. Tammany Parish Jail on Friday (February 21) on six counts of felony theft totaling $77,851.81.  She was booked in St. Tammany, after bonding out of the Tangipahoa Parish Jail on similar charges. 

In all of these cases, money was given by the victims to Gaspard or her company in exchange for work that was never done or materials that were never ordered. The investigation remains ongoing and additional charges will be forthcoming.

Gaspard also has holds for both the Lafourche and St. Charles Parish Sheriff’s Offices pending her release from the St. Tam
