HOUMA, La. (LSP) - Authorities in Houma are asking for the public’s help in locating four individuals wanted for felony fraud in two separate cases, according to Louisiana State Police.

Bonnie Brien, 53, of Gray, Ashley Burnett, 32, of Houma, and Fredericka Burnett, 51, of Houma, allegedly conspired and participated in a staged U-Haul vehicle crash in Terrebonne Parish. They were attempting to collect $10,349.75 from the Republic Western Insurance Company. Heather Thibodaux, 34, and Germaine Johnson, 42, were also allegedly involved in the fraud.

On February 7, troopers located and arrested Thibodaux and Johnson at their residence in Houma. They were each booked into the Terrebonne Parish Criminal Justice Center for violation of automobile insurance fraud and injuring public records. Ashley and Fredericka Burnett and Bonnie Brien remain at large. They each have active warrants for automobile insurance fraud and injuring public records.

In the second case, detectives are looking for Tommie Ledon Jenkins, 39, of Houma. Jenkins was allegedly unlicensed to work as a contractor and in December of 2017, police said he failed to complete a residential construction contract in Bayou Vista, LA after $60,000.00 was paid to him. Authorities obtained an arrest warrant for Jenkins in St. Mary Parish on charges of residential contractor fraud, engaging in the business of contracting without a license, and felony theft.

Anyone having information concerning these wanted individuals should contact the Louisiana State Police Insurance Fraud/Auto Theft Unit at 985-876-8834 or insurance.fraud.unit@dps.la.gov.
