On November 4, a complainant reported to a St. John the Baptist Parish Sheriff’s Office deputy that she left her wallet containing several of her identification cards and personal banking information in a shopping cart after shopping at a LaPlace retail store. A couple of weeks later, a large sum of money was transferred from her banking account without her authorization into another account. After the transaction, the sum of money was withdrawn from that account. Through the course of the investigation and after several interviews, detectives determined that the transfer of funds was done through a fraudulent wire transaction.

Detectives identified Bryant Daigre Jr., 25, of Little Hope Street in Garyville as the person who withdrew the money from his account after the fraudulent wire transaction. Based on the findings of the investigation, detectives sought and obtained a judicial court ordered arrest warrant on Daigre.

After being informed of the outstanding arrest warrant, Bryant Daigre Jr. turned himself in to detectives. Monday afternoon, he was booked with bank fraud, theft by fraud, and identity theft. Daigre remains in custody in lieu of a $150,000 bond.
