The Louisiana State Police Bureau of Investigations/Alexandria Field Office announced Wednesday the arrest of a former deputy of the Concordia Parish Sheriff’s Office on theft charges.

Former Concordia Parish Deputy James Boren Jr., 56, faces charges of malfeasance in office, felony theft, misdemeanor theft and theft of a firearm, state police said in a press release.

“In May of 2020, LSP AFO was contacted by CPSO to investigate discrepancies discovered during an internal audit,” the press release states. “During the initial investigation, Boren Jr. admitted to taking approximately $21,000 over a four-year period. Upon further investigation, the internal audit revealed Boren Jr. had stolen approximately $35,000 and one firearm.

“Based on information obtained and with the assistance of the Concordia Parish Sheriff’s Office, Troopers secured an arrest warrant for Boren Jr. He was arrested and booked into the Concordia Parish Detention Center earlier today (Wednesday). He is charged with malfeasance in office, felony theft, misdemeanor theft, and theft of a firearm.”

Officials said the investigation remains ongoing.
