Former St. Tammany educator arrested on child molestation charges

Updated:

SLIDELL, LA (WVUE) - A former school employee in St. Tammany Parish is under arrest for allegedly molesting a 10-year-old boy.

Slidell Police arrested 53-year-old Wendell Troullier, a former paraeducator at Bonne Ecole Elementary School, after the alleged victim's mother called and reported the crime.

According to police, the alleged victim was playing at Troullier's house and came home visibly upset. The 10-year-old said that Troullier touched him in his "private area" through the outside and inside his shorts. 

After the alleged victim's mother contacted police, investigators found out Troullier worked in the St. Tammany Parish School System and immediately notified the school board. School administrators immediately removed him from the school. Police say the alleged crime did not take place at the school or involved on of its students.

Troullier is charged with molestation of a juvenile and is currently in the St. Tammany Parish Jail.

Police say the investigation is ongoing and are not ruling out the possibility of other victims.

Anyone who may have had inappropriate contact with Troullier is asked to contact Sergeant Jim Davis at (985) 646-4347 or jdavis@slidellpd.com.
