NEW ORLEANS (BRPROUD) — A Belle Rose man was charged with bank fraud after a New Orleans company filed a complaint with the FBI.

In August 2017, 40-year-old Rodney Roussell started working for the company identified as “Company A,” according to the Eastern District of Louisiana.

Roussell was not authorized to have access to the company’s bank account, from which he allegedly used to pay the balance of his personal bank card with $213,372.05 from the company’s account from April 2018 through June 2018, according to U.S. Attorney Duane A. Evans.

Evans said Roussell was charged on Jan. 7 and faces a maximum of 30 years in prison, a $1 million fine, a five-year supervised release and a special assessment fee of $100 if convicted.
