DENHAM SPRINGS, La. (BRPROUD) – Two suspects were arrested after allegedly stealing again from Ulta Beauty in Juban Crossing.
Chaquita Spikes, 45, Kenner and Marvielle Smith, 26, of New Orleans were taken into custody on Tuesday, November 15.
Both were booked into the Livingston Parish Detention Center on the same day.
It all started when LPSO detectives saw a vehicle that they believed was tied to another theft which took place last month.
Detectives kept an eye on the out of state vehicle which eventually stopped in front of Ulta Beauty.
One passenger got out of the vehicle and went inside the store.
“That passenger soon ran out of the store with more than $2,000 worth of unpaid fragrances,” according to the Livingston Parish Sheriff’s Office.
Further investigation found that this duo were suspects in a theft from the same store in October.
LPSO said that on that occasion “$500 worth of fragrances were taken without payment.”
The investigation remains ongoing.
