Lafourche Parish Sheriff Craig Webre announced two bank employees have been arrested after admitting to stealing money from teller drawers at the bank in which they were employed. Tabatha Allemand (W/F, D.O.B. 06/17/83) of 208 Bayou Folse in Raceland and Tammy Price (W/F, D.O.B. 09/26/62) of 102 West 165th Street in Galliano have each been charged with Felony Theft in the case.
On Tuesday, April 8, managers at a bank branch in Cut Off contacted the Lafourche Parish Sheriff’s Office in reference to the two employees confessing to taking the money. Detectives made contact with both women who admitted to taking money from their bank teller drawers on multiple occasions for personal use. Their crimes were eventually discovered on Monday, April 7 when both women were away from the bank, and other tellers closed out their drawers for the day.
Allemand and Price were arrested on Thursday, April 10, and each was charged with Felony Theft. They were booked into the Lafourche Parish Detention Center and subsequently released after each posted $10,000 bond as had been set by Judge Walter I. Lanier III.
