On April 15, 2015, St. John the Baptist Parish Sheriff’s Office deputies responded to a business in the 300 block of East Airline Highway in LaPlace for the report of internal theft. When management of the business questioned employees about recent losses for the company, three employees quit without notice. An internal audit conducted by the company revealed documentation for transactions for each of the former employees, missing files, and altered checks.

Based on evidence collected during the investigation, detectives obtained judicial court ordered arrest warrants for racketeering, theft totaling approximately $20,075, and forgery.

On Friday, August 14, detectives arrested:

Keyetta (aka Kenyetta) Tebault, 39, of LaPlace and booked her with racketeering, theft (23 counts; $4,015.00), and forgery (2 counts). She bonded out of jail Friday on a $53,000.00 bond.
