Former Office Manager Charged with Felony Theft
Caddo sheriff's detectives have arrested a Shreveport woman for not returning thousands of dollars deposited into her bank account in error.
Sheriff Steve Prator says 40-year-old Cheralyn Coatney was an office manager for Central Management. After leaving her job for unrelated reasons, she was issued a final check by direct deposit. But instead of being just over $1,500, it was more than $10,000. The company also deposited another check for the correct amount.
Coatney was contacted numerous times about the error, but she refused to return the money. She's been booked into Caddo Correctional Center for felony theft.
