The Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office investigated a theft at Festival Apartments on Fruge St. in Lake Charles, on August 16, 2018, after a corporate manager reported that $600 of tenants rent money was missing.

According to a media release, "several money orders made payable to a former employee, Carla K. Louis, 31, of Lake Charles, were located. The money orders should have been made payable to the Festival Apartments".

Investigators located more money orders and cash receipts that were deposited to a bank account totaling $6,420 and made out to Louis.

Louis, who was arrested and booked into the Calcasieu Correctional Center, is charged with "theft" from $5,000, but less than $25,000." Her bond is set at $5,000.
