By Special to the American Press

A man and woman from Sulphur have been charged with theft and flight from an officer, authorities said.

Calcasieu Parish Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Kim Myers said 28-year-old Jason P. Moore and 24-year-old Chasity R. Marshall have been accused of stealing a computer from a home where they spent the night.

“Around 1 p.m. on Nov. 28, deputies were patrolling the area of North Clairborne Street in Sulphur when they observed two people, later identified as Moore and Marshall, walking on the street and carrying what appeared to be duffel bags.

“When deputies approached the two, both fled on foot and hid behind a house. Following a brief pursuit, Moore and Marshall were arrested without incident. Deputies recovered the two duffel bags, which contained a computer monitor and tower valued at over $500, under the house they were hiding behind.”

Judge Clayton Davis set their bonds at $1,500 each.

Detective Mike Conner was the lead investigator.
