Shreveport family trio accused of stealing cash in wire fraud case
Shreveport, LA — A Shreveport woman was arrested on Monday for stealing cash from a local discount store while she worked there, said Caddo Sheriff Steve Prator.
Deequita Lewis, 28, of the 8200 block of Wildbriar, was employed in the money center at Wal-Mart where she fraudulently wired $6,500 and $7,500 to two other money centers in Shreveport. Lewis did not pay for the wired funds, and the money was received by two others with whom she shared the funds, said Caddo Detective Bobby Herring.
Lewis was arrested for illegal transmission of monetary funds and booked into Caddo Correctional Center.
Jamarcus White and Shaquita White, brother and sister of Deequita Lewis, were arrested Tuesday for illegal transmission of monetary funds and booked into Caddo Correctional Center.
