COVINGTON—District Attorney Warren Montgomery reports that Anthony Benson Andre, 58, former director of St. Tammany Parish Recreation District No. 4, was charged Thursday (July 20) with theft over $750 but less than $5,000 for the alleged misuse of district funds.
The charges stem from an investigative report by the Louisiana Legislative Auditor’s Office, which found personal charges on the district’s credit card and undocumented cash travel advances.
“When you are in a position of public trust, you will be held accountable,” Montgomery said.
Montgomery expressed appreciation to the legislative auditor for shining light on the recreation district’s financial problems. Assistant District Attorney Butch Wilson has been assigned to prosecute the case.
