A Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's deputy has been fired after turning himself in on a criminal warrant issued by the Lake Charles Police.
43-year-old Scott Helms was booked into the Calcasieu Correctional Center and charged with criminal damage to property over $3,000. Deputies say the property involved in the February 11th incident was in possession of a family member.
Helms was released on a $2,500 bond. The Sheriff's Office says after the arrest an internal investigation was conducted which resulted in his termination from the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office.
