Chaquita Spikes, 45, of Kenner, and Marvielle Smith, 26, of New Orleans, were observed from the parking lot at Juban Crossing in a familiar white Honda with Texas plates by deputies on patrol in Juban Crossing, officials said.

According to Sheriff Jason Ard, deputies saw the driver of that vehicle drop a passenger off at the entrance of Ulta Beauty. That passenger soon ran out of Ulta Beauty with more than $2,000 worth of unpaid fragrances, he explained. Spikes and Smith were both taken into custody, he added.

Deputies said their investigation also ties these same two alleged thieves to an October theft of Ulta that resulted in $500 worth of unpaid fragrances.
