Two Henderson police officers and one former officer were arrested Friday night in connection with a year-long investigation by the state. The investigation centered around an alleged illegal traffic citation bounty. Police Chief Leroy Guidry and Deputy Chief Oliver Mack Lloyd are charged with nine counts of filing or maintaining false public records, nine counts of payroll fraud and one count of malfeasance in office. A third former officer, Randall Trahan is charged with possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. The question remains how did Trahan ever become a Henderson Police Officer?
