MANSFIELD, La (AP) — A 23-year-old Louisiana woman is accused of selling information from state and federal law enforcement databases while working as a city police dispatcher.

Destiny Allen of Mansfield was arrested Wednesday on a charge of malfeasance in office, a Louisiana State Police news release said.

The statement said she’s accused of illegally accessing the National Crime Information Center and the Louisiana Law Enforcement Telecommunications System.

Police Chief Annette Blue said Thursday that Allen no longer works for the department in Mansfield, a city of 4,600 in DeSoto Parish about 20 miles (32 kilometers) from the Texas state line. Blue said she doesn’t know whether Allen has an attorney who could speak for her.

State police are still investigating and have no further information to release, their statement said.
