Tangipahoa Parish Woman Wanted for Scamming Tenants

Tangipahoa Parish Sheriff Daniel Edwards is asking the public's assistance in locating 30 year-old Sara Jacy Saucier, a Hammond resident wanted for scamming numerous tenants of the Creek's Apartment Complex out of money in exchange for a forged doctor's letter, claiming their pet was an emotional support animal. 

According to the investigation, Saucier was employed at the apartment complex and sent emails to the tenants reminding them to pay their pet deposit if they owned a companion animal. Saucier then followed up her email blast with a second email, telling the tenants that she had a friend who would provide a medical letter deeming their pets as "emotional support animals" for half the cost of the pet deposit.

Saucier then collected money from at least 15 victims, and provided them with a letter believed to be that of a licensed psychologist. Upon discovery of the scheme, the apartment complex fired Saucier, and even determined the letter was signed by her and not an actual doctor. 

Detectives have since issued warrants for Saucier's arrest on the charges of  Misdemeanor Theft (15 counts), Illegal Transmission of Monetary Funds (15 counts), and Forgery (15 counts).

Sheriff Edwards asks anyone with information regarding the whereabouts of Saucier, to call Detective Joe Bourn at 985-902-2072, OR if you wish to remain anonymous, please call Crime Stoppers of Tangipahoa’s anonymous tip line at 1-800-554-5245 or visit www.tangicrimestoppers.com and click on the P3 Tips icon or Submit A Tip! You may be eligible for a cash reward.
