SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) -

A local tax preparer has been arrested and charged with identity theft, accused of trying to collect a client's refund.

39-year-old Latrisha Beaudoin, of the 8700 block of Emerald Loop, turned herself in at the Caddo Correctional Center on a warrant obtained by Caddo Sheriff's Detective Bobby Herring.

Beaudoin was a tax preparer and allegedly changed bank account information on an individual's tax return in an effort to steal the refund. The IRS sent a refund of $4,382 to the account. After investigating, it was learned the bank account the refund was transferred to belonged to Beaudoin.

Beaudoin is also charged with violating probation. She was charged in 2012 with 3 counts of bank fraud, theft and issuing worthless checks. In 2010, she was charged with 4 counts of bank fraud and 2 counts of theft.

She remains in custody at the Caddo Correctional Center.
