Houston woman charged with Houma jewelry store robbery

HOUMA, LA (WVUE) - A Houston woman sits in a Terrebonne Parish jail accused of burglarizing a jewelry store.

Natalie Dayes was arrested in Texas earlier this month and brought back to Houma on Tuesday on charges of breaking in to and robbing a local jewelry store.

Detectives say Dayes was involved in two break-ins at Fakier's Jewelry Store in the 8000 block of Main Street, the latest happened on March 1, 2015.

During the first burglary on Feb. 21, 2015, detectives say someone shattered the front window of the store, smashed a jewelry case and stole a few watches.

Eight days later the same store had its front glass door shattered again, according to authorities, but nothing was able to be taken. Houma detectives believe the two incidents are related.

Dayes is booked with one count of simple burglary.

Detectives say the investigation continues. If you have any information about the case, you're urged to call the Houma Police Department at 985-873-6371 or the Bayou Region Crime Stoppers 1-800-743-7433. There is a $1,000 reward.
