New Iberia City Marshal Charged in Forgery Investigation

New Iberia – Earlier today, New Iberia City Marshal Haywood “Tony” Migues was charged and booked into the Iberia Parish Jail following an investigation into alleged falsifying of subpoena signatures. The investigation began last month as Detectives with the Louisiana State Police Bureau of Investigations received information alleging multiple signatures had been forged by Migues on official court documents.  A thorough investigation confirmed Migues forged the signature of multiple individuals showing they had been served with a subpoena in lieu of making personal service.  Based on this information, investigators secured an arrest warrant for Migues.

On February 4, 2021, Migues (age 67) turned himself in to investigators.  Migues was charged with eight counts of forgery, injuring public records, and malfeasance in office.  He was booked into the Iberia Parish Jail without incident.

The investigation is active and ongoing.  No further information is available at this time.

The Louisiana State Police online reporting system is also available to the public through a convenient and secure reporting form that is submitted to the appropriate investigators. Citizens can access the form by visiting www.lsp.org and clicking the Suspicious Activity link.
