IDENTITY THEFT, BANK FRAUD, EXPLOITATION OF THE INFIRMED
NAPOLEONVILLE – Assumption Parish Sheriff Leland Falcon reports the arrest of Brian Keith Lang, 51, of 1325 Highway 1, Thibodaux, LA, on charges related to financial crimes against the elderly.
On September 26, 2019, detectives initiated an investigation after a 72-year-old man complained that a family member exploited his identity and enticed him to sign a document falsely represented as a beneficiary on a life insurance policy when in fact it was power of attorney.
Once the document was signed, the suspect, now identified as Brian Keith Lang, fraudulently obtained credit cards and illegally accessed funds at a bank and furthered the criminal activity by expending those funds for his personal use.
The suspect is also alleged to have provided fraudulent documents to a notary.
Brian Keith Lang was arrested and booked into the Assumption Parish Detention Center on Wednesday on charges of:
*Exploitation of the Infirmed
Lang remains incarcerated pending a bond hearing.
