EUNICE (AP) — The Louisiana Department of Environmental Quality says a 41-year-old woman who owns a company that transports waste tires was arrested and charged with numerous counts in connection with a scheme to allegedly cheat the state's waste tire fund.
Anna Guillory was arrested Wednesday. She is the owner and operator of Reds Transport.
She was charged with 34 counts of forgery, 34 counts of filing a false public record, one count of theft of about $3,930 and one count of defrauding the Louisiana Waste Tire Management Fund.
DEQ accused Guillory of inflating the number of eligible tires and forging names so that she could be reimbursed by a waste tire processor under the state program.
A sister-in-law, Majella Green, was arrested on the same charges in May.
