Ex-toll collector in Louisiana pleads guilty to toll theft

NEW ORLEANS (AP) — A former toll collector in Louisiana has pleaded guilty to stealing under $750 in tolls during one month last year. Times-Picayune cites an audit made public Monday that says 55-year-old Roxie Kolbe pleaded guilty to theft in February. She was sentenced to one year of probation. Kolbe had been accused of pocketing tolls during February 2017 from the Lake Pontchartrain Causeway.

The audit says a Causeway toll analysis detected the theft and an internal investigation led authorities to Kolbe. Bridge authorities notified the Mandeville Police Department last year and Kolbe was fired. Another Causeway toll collector was accused in 2016 of stealing $4,400 in tolls. Both toll collectors were ordered to pay full restitution.
