Investigation underway into WBRSO employee for allegedly stealing $150,000

Louisiana Legislative Auditor Mike Waguespack confirms they are investigating West Baton Rouge Sheriff’s Office employee Mandy Miller for allegations of theft.

“Sheriff Mike Cazes asked for us to investigate the matter,” said Waguespack.

Multiple sources confirm to Unfiltered with Kiran that Miller is accused of stealing nearly $150,000 through the job.

The employee has worked at the WBR courthouse for several years and been in trouble with the law previously.

The employee allegedly punched a deputy in the chest about seven years ago after she showed up at the L’Auberge Casino in Baton Rouge. She and a friend were banned from going to the casino, according to records. It’s why deputies were called to escort the two off the property. That’s when her friend started yelling at the deputy. The WBRSO employee allegedly punched the deputy in the chest and as the two were being escorted to the police car, her friend kicked the deputy in the leg.

The employee was charged with two misdemeanors, criminal trespass and battery on a police officer in that incident.

Currently, the employee is using her personal leave while the investigation is underway.

UWK also reached out to District Attorney Tony Clayton who said he asked the Louisiana State Police to investigate the allegation. UWK awaits confirmation from LSP whether they are investigating the case or not.
