There is a bizarre story about a district attorney's stolen sport utility vehicle and the accused thief behind bars. The suspected crook claims she stole the vehicle from a New Orleans hotel to pay for a medical procedure for her husband. However, the story doesn't end there. WAFB's Keitha Nelson has more.
Tony Falterman is the district attorney for Ascension, Assumption and St. James parishes. Falterman's keys could open a lot of doors, and in the wrong hands, change thousands of lives. He says, "My keys are the most important thing in my life."
So, when Falterman's SUV was stolen, his mind went into overdrive, wondering about what could potentially happen if the thieves figured out they had more than just a vehicle to strip. He says, "I live in my vehicle. I had my firearm in there. In the city of New Orleans, in the wrong hands, someone could have been killed with it."
The district attorney says he thought it was safe to valet park in the Marriott while at a conference in New Orleans. The thief was caught on camera in the Marriott's parking garage, but Falterman says they had a hard time figuring out if the person was a man or a women.
As it turns out, "One of the thieves is a transvestite. The wife is stealing the car so she can raise enough money for the husband to have a sex change operation." Falterman is smiling today because his sport utility vehicle was found on a side street in New Orleans, with a mere scratch. His most valuable items, his gun and keys, were found inside.
As for that sex change operation, the district attorney says those thieves will have to find another way to pay for it, after serving time. Falterman says the thief is pretty slick. The woman claimed to be a relative of Falterman's and asked the valet for the keys. Falterman says the one thing bugging him is that his badge is still missing.
