The former manager of Metairie's Lafreniere Park is behind bars for allegedly stealing $14,000 in public money.

Police say Barry McGuiness would tell employees to cash checks made out to the parish and bring the money to him.

After further investigation, officials discovered that an additional $95,000 in cash was also missing from token machines used for the now-closed splash park and carousel.

McGuiness and former assistant park manager Chris Naumann have both been fired by the park.
