A Caddo Parish Sheriff’s detective arrested a Shreveport woman following a forgery investigation, said Sheriff Steve Prator.

In September of 2019, the Caddo-Shreveport Financial Crimes Task Force received a report from Caddo Parish Schools that individuals were purchasing forged diplomas and transcripts from an employee of the Caddo Parish School Board.    

Caddo Sheriff’s Detective Clarissa Harris’ investigation identified Latoya Mosby, 39, was the CPSB employee involved. 

The Office of Inspector General Department of Education assisted in the investigation and discovered people used the fraudulent documents to enroll in secondary schools and receive about $482,211 in financial aid.

Mosby was arrested at her home on July 7. She was booked into the Caddo Correctional Center and was charged with forgery. She has since been released on bond.

This investigation is ongoing and additional arrests are possible.
