PENSACOLA, Fla -- Agents with the Florida Department of Law Enforcement arrested Doug Landry, 37, of 28855 Old CC Road, Albany, Louisiana, on one count of organized fraud over $50,000, related to a fictitious over billing scheme.

FDLE began its investigation in October 2016 with assistance from the Escambia County State Attorney’s Office.  Landry was arrested today by FDLE agents and the Louisiana State Police and booked into the county jail located in Hammond, Louisiana, Tangipahoa Parish.

The case will be prosecuted by the Office of the State Attorney, 1st Judicial Circuit.
