Ponchatoula Man Arrested on Fraud

Hammond police were called after a man tried to buy a vehicle using fake $100 bills.

Officers found Deshaun Andrew Williams with more than $17,000 in fake $100 bills on him.  Williams was arrested on counts of theft by fraud and monetary instrument, according to The Advocate.

“For Motion Picture Use Only” is written on the top right side of each bill’s face.

Williams was also arrested on one count of introduction of contraband into a penal institution after officers recovered marijuana and hydrocodone during the booking process.

If you have a theft charge in Louisiana, Carl Barkemeyer, Baton Rouge theft lawyer, may be able to help.
