A woman who has spent the last five years processing inmates into the Hancock County jail found herself behind bars on Monday morning.

Sheriff’s Chief Deputy Don Bass said Lisa Lavigne, 29, was arrested on a charge of grand larceny Monday around 11 a.m. Bass said she was arrested for stealing from someone she was processing into the jail.

“We had been investigating it for about a week and our investigation determined that she stole from someone that was being booked into the jail,” he said.

Bass said Lavigne’s bond was set at $10,000 and she was released from the jail on the bond.
