Bob Dean Arrested by Attorney General Jeff Landry’s Office

BATON ROUGE, LA – Attorney General Jeff Landry’s Office has arrested Bob Glynn Dean, Jr. – the owner of seven Louisiana nursing homes that evacuated to a warehouse in Independence prior to Hurricane Ida. Dean, 68 of Thomaston (GA), has been charged in Tangipahoa Parish with eight felony counts of Cruelty to Persons with Infirmities, five felony counts of Medicaid Fraud, and two felony counts of Obstruction of Justice.

The arrest comes after a joint investigation by the Attorney General’s Medicaid Fraud Control Unit (MFCU) and his Louisiana Bureau of Investigations (LBI) revealed Dean refused to move his residents out of the warehouse following Hurricane Ida, billed Medicaid for dates his residents were not receiving proper care, and engaged in conduct intended to intimidate or obstruct public health officials and law enforcement.

The U.S. Department of Health & Human Services Office of Inspector General assisted the MFCU and LBI. Additional legal action may be filed in the future as the investigation by the Attorney General’s Office is still ongoing.
