From the Washington Parish Sheriff's Office:
Mark Anthony Braud, 23, resident of Ruby Taylor Road, Franklinton, was arrested February 4 by the Washington Parish Sheriff’s Office on a theft charge.

He was released the following day after posting at $3,500 bond.

Braud’s arrest was the result of an investigation by Washington Parish Sheriff’s Office detectives after several complaints were filed reporting that Braud would advertise for sale vehicles that he did not own. After receiving payment for a vehicle, he then would fail to deliver the vehicle to the purchaser.

The investigation into Braud’s illegal activities continues. Any person who has been a victim of Mark Anthony Braud is asked to contact Washington Parish detectives at (985) 661-6024.

“Always know the person with whom you are doing business,” said Sheriff Randy Seal. “Never give another person your hard-earned money until you are satisfied that the transaction is legitimate. Honest citizens of Washington Parish never deserve to be defrauded by a crook. Always be alert when conducting a monetary transaction”
