HOUMA, La. (AP) - Terrebonne sheriff’s detectives have arrested a Houma man following a monthlong investigation into bank fraud.

Sheriff Jerry Larpenter tells The Courier (https://bit.ly/1SCaLCm) 26-year-old Travis Paul Griffin is accused of making suspicious online transactions through his personal and business accounts at two local banks.

Larpenter says Griffin’s accounts were overdrawn for more than $180,000 after South Louisiana Bank and Synergy Bank had been alerted to the transactions.

Griffin was booked Tuesday with three counts of bank fraud and one count of issuing of worthless checks. He remains in the Terrebonne Parish jail on a $100,000 bond.

Online jail records do not list an attorney Griffin.
