CAMERON MAN CITED FOR FRAUDULENT SHRIMP SALES

A two-month-long investigation by Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries Enforcement Division agents working in conjunction with the Cameron Parish Sheriff's Office and the Louisiana Department of Public Health has culminated with the arrest of a Cameron man.
Ray Paul McDaniel, owner of Fresh American Shrimp in Cameron, was arrested on charges, which include theft by fraud, obstruction of justice, injuring public records, and failing to maintain records.

McDaniel was arrested and cited after he allegedly knowingly sold tainted shrimp to several consumers. Complaints from different sources claimed that the shrimp were sold fraudulently in respect to the pounds purchased as well as the quality of the shrimp. Further investigation led to the seizure of several thousand pounds of shrimp by Department of Health officials. After laboratory testing, these shrimp were later taken from the establishment and destroyed due to the shrimp being unfit for human consumption.

Obstruction of justice is punishable by fines of not more than $10,000, up to five years in prison with or without hard labor, or both. Injuring public records is punishable by a fine of not more than $5000, up to five years in prison with or without hard labor, or both. Theft by fraud is punishable by fines of not more than $2000, up to two years in prison, or both. Failure to maintain records is a class three violation punishable by fines of up to $500, jail for not more than 90 days, or both, plus court costs.

The cases will be heard before Judge Ward Fontenot in the 38th district court in Cameron.

Involved in the case were Lieutenants Larry Breaux, Glenn Angelle, and Jesse Savoie, Sgt. Remy Broussard, and Senior Agents Chris Harp, David Liles, and Jim Matkin.
