A former tire salesman in Acadia Parish faces up to 20 years in prison and a $250,000 fine after pleading guilty in federal court in Lafayette to one count of wire fraud.

According to U.S. Attorney Stephanie Finley, 53-year-old Deynoodt Joseph Besse of Rayne admitted to diverting proceeds from tire sales at the company he worked for, Interco, to a fake company he created, INT Sales between 1997 and 2010:

He would arrange for the tire sales as an Interco sales associate and then take customers’ account information. Besse would process the account information through a point of sale device, and the transactions were then credited to a bank account associated with INT Sales. The government alleges that Besse fraudulently obtained $143,872.88 using the scheme.

The case was investigated by the FBI.
