Mandeville Police book suspect with theft, forgery

MANDEVILLE, LA (WVUE) - The Mandeville Police Department arrested a Baton Rouge for felony theft and forgery related to a complaint of stolen checks.

Police say the investigation began in May of 2014 when the Oxford House in Mandeville reported that several checks were missing from an Oxford House checkbook.

Detectives quickly linked Schexnayder, a resident of Oxford House, who abruptly left the group home without any notice, to the theft.

Schexnayder had cashed seven different checks from the Oxford House Account totaling just over $2,000.00. The checks were cashed at local Mandeville businesses. Detectives positively identified Schexnayder on surveillance video.

The Mandeville Police Department obtained warrants in May of 2014 charging Schexnayder with seven counts each of theft and forgery. Detectives finally caught up with Schexnayder in East Baton Rouge where he was in custody on unrelated charges. He was brought back to Mandeville and charged on the aforementioned warrants on May 29, 2015 and was transported to the St. Tammany Parish Jail.
