A 33-year-old Jennings woman has been charged with 128 counts of bank fraud and one count of theft over $1,500, state police said.
Sgt. James Anderson said Dashane Drake was arrested Thursday following a one-month investigation by the Lake Charles office of the Louisiana State Police Bureau of Investigations.
"The investigation revealed that Drake was employed as a manager at Harbor Loans in Jennings," Anderson said in a news release. "Drake would approve loans to customers then have those customers cash the check at a local bank or grocery store and give a portion of the loan back to her.
"The total amount stolen is over $225,000."
Anderson said Drake was booked into the Jefferson Davis Parish Jail and is being held without bond.
Anyone who had a loan with Drake or has information related to this case is asked to contact the state police at 491-2903.
