Barbara Bordelon Jail Booking

Lufkin, Texas (The Weekly Vice) - Barbara Mott Bordelon, a 52-year-old Lufkin woman was jailed Thursday after she allegedly sent harassing messages to herself using a cell phone, then reported the harassment to police.

According to Lufkin Police, Bordelon reportedly bought a prepaid cell phone, using the name of another woman. She then sent threatening text messages to her regular phone, using the prepaid cell phone.

Investigators say Bordelon contacted police on July 9th and claimed that she was being harassed by another woman.

She showed officers a message from the would-be harasser that threatened to harm her and her boyfriend if she didn't convince officers to stop the investigation.

An investigation revealed, however, that Bordelon purchased the prepaid cell phone using a false identity and used both phones to create the illusion that she was being harassed and threatened. Bordelon was unable to explain why she acted in such manner.

She was booked into the Angelina County Jail and charged with two counts of tampering with evidence, a third-degree felony, and one count of fraudulent use of identifying information, a state felony. She is currently being held in lieu of a $95,000 bond. According to court records, she has no prior criminal convictions on her record.
