LAFAYETTE — A 37-year-old law clerk is accused of issuing checks from her employer’s account to pay personal debts, the Lafayette Parish Sheriff’s Office said Thursday.
The Sheriff’s Office arrested Dina Noble on Wednesday on 44 counts of felony theft stemming from the theft of more than $14,000, Capt. Kip Judice, spokesman for the Sheriff’s Office, said in a news release.
Noble worked for the Glenn Armentor Law Corporation, Judice said.
Investigators were alerted to suspicious activity concerning the account in March.
Noble claimed that the checks were going toward specific debts of the law firm’s clients, Judice said. Once the checks were signed, Noble erased the clients’ names on the memo line of the checks and used them to pay her personal debts, Judice said.
Noble is being held in lieu of $28,000 bail, Judice said.
