Alarm company employee arrested for identity theft

From the Office of the Louisiana State Fire Marshal:

LIVINGSTON PARISH (July 3, 2019)- A Denham Springs man has been arrested for using a credit card he allegedly stole while working in his capacity as a security alarm technician.

Ashton McLin, 26, was booked into the East Baton Rouge Parish Prison on Tuesday, July 2, as a fugitive from Livingston Parish. Once transferred, McLin will be booked on an outstanding warrant from the Livingston Parish Sheriff’s Office for one count of Identity Theft.

Back in February, a student at a local high school discovered not only was his credit card missing, but that it had been used without his knowledge. The student was able to identify the individual seen using the card on surveillance video as McLin, who had been at the school performing work as an employee of a security alarm company around the time the student’s wallet went missing.

The LPSO obtained a warrant for McLin’s arrest and his employer fired him.

Due to the State Fire Marshal’s Office overseeing licensing and regulations of security alarm companies across the state, the agency was alerted to the incident and began its own investigation into the matter. SFM deputies discovered McLin had since obtained a new job with a new security company and still had an outstanding warrant for his arrest in the case.

SFM deputies located McLin at that new job on Tuesday, July 2, and took him into custody.

The SFM’s licensing investigation is still ongoing.
