BATON ROUGE, LA – Attorney General Jeff Landry announced today that his Medicaid Fraud Control Unit has arrested two people.

“It is disheartening to find individuals who prey on our State’s most vulnerable,” said Attorney General Jeff Landry. “My office and I are committed to investigating and prosecuting those who defraud the Medicaid system and harm its patients.”

Donyelle Chaney, 29 of Baton Rouge, was arrested on Medicaid Fraud. Chaney allegedly provided services to multiple Medicaid recipients after being terminated by the servicing company.

Christopher Cador, 26 of Baton Rouge, was arrested on Simple Battery of Persons with Infirmities. Cador allegedly struck a disabled individual repeatedly with a closed fist.

Chaney was booked into the East Baton Rouge Parish Prison. Cador was booked into the East Feliciana Parish Prison.
