Two Shreveport Women Arrested for Scamming Elderly Veterans
Investigators assigned to the Caddo-Shreveport Financial Crimes Task Force have made an arrest in a month’s long investigation into the theft of over a million dollars from those who served in our nation’s armed forces, primarily senior citizens.
Investigators began their probe in September and learned that ZarRajah Watkins (5-8-2001) used her position at her job at Teleperformance to gain access to USAA bank account information. Watkins allegedly sold the account information to Destane Glass (5-8-2001) and others who used a number of tactics to defraud account holders of more than one million dollars. Glass reportedly used the money to buy a home, expensive cars, and other lavish items.
Watkins was taken into custody in the 3200 block of Sandra Drive on November 17th and following interviews with investigators, was charged with 175 counts of Identity Theft. She was booked into the Caddo Parish Correctional Center where she remains with no bond.
Just before 1:00 p.m. this afternoon investigators and agents took Glass into custody in the 100 block of Captain H.M. Shreve. She was charged with 65 counts of Identity Theft and was also booked into the Caddo Correctional Center following interviews with investigators.
Chief Wayne Smith and Sheriff Steve Prator would like to thank the United States Secret Service, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives, the Louisiana State Police, and the Shreveport City Marshalls for their assistance in this matter.
The investigation is still ongoing, and more arrests are expected.
