Central school official fabricates projects to steal money
According to court documents, David McLaughlin made up bids for over three years for over a million dollars for supplies.
It's all part of upgrades to the Central school system.
The problem is in Louisiana law, any project worth more than $30,000 has to be advertised and given to the lowest bidder; anything between $10,000-$20,000 has to have at least three quotes.
McLaughlin just made those quotes up, including prices, products, and even addresses.
According to the warrant, the man refused to cooperate by hiding, even deleting emails when he was asked about it.
He delayed, never produced the emails, and eventually quit cooperating with the investigation.
