A former Highland Clinic receptionist was arrested Monday for stealing nearly $5,000 received from patients.
Laura Ferrell, 29, of Shreveport, was arrested on a warrant obtained by Caddo Parish deputies.
An investigation discovered Ferrell was stealing cash payments and manipulating computer records to hide the thefts. Patients began complaining when they were turned over to the collection office.
The clinic conducted an audit which led to the discovery of the missing cash and deleted computer records. The amount stolen was $4,946.
Ferrell was booked into the Caddo Correctional Center for felony theft.
