New Iberia City Marshal Charged in Forgery Arrest
67-year-old Haywood "Tony" Migues - the New Iberia City Marshal - turned himself in to investigators Thursday morning following an investigation into alleged falsifying of subpeona signatures.
Louisiana State Police spokesman Trooper Thomas Gossen says Migues was booked into the Iberia Parish Jail and faces eight counts of forgery, injuring public records, and malfeasance in office. Detectives received tips in January alleging multiple signatures had been forged by Migues on official court documents. Investigators say they confirmed Migues did this pertaining to multiple individuals, showing they had been served with a subpoena in lieu of making personal service.
Trooper Gossen says the investigation is active and ongoing.
"The Louisiana State Police online reporting system is also available to the public through a convenient and secure reporting form that is submitted to the appropriate investigators," says Trooper Gossen in a press release. "Citizens can access the form by visiting www.lsp.org and clicking the Suspicious Activity link."
