NATCHITOCHES PARISH, La. (KTBS) -

Natchitoches Parish Sheriff's Deputies have arrested a Rapides Parish couple in connection with the theft and unauthorized use of a credit card.

Back on November 29th, NPSO Deputies responded to a reported theft. After talking to the complainant, deputies learned that an American Express credit card had been stolen from the residence and that about $4,000 in unauthorized purchases had been made in Natchitoches and Rapides Parishes.

On December 2nd, NPSO Deputies responded to a reported theft at RJ Express Mart in Chopin, Louisiana where about $44.38 of fuel had been stolen.

After reviewing surveillance video at various businesses and evidence collected in both cases, deputies were able to identify the suspects.

NPSO Deputies also found out that both suspects were incarcerated in the Rapides Parish Detention Center on unrelated charges in connection with an incident in Rapides Parish.

Sheriff's officers then traveled to Rapides Parish to interview one of the suspects and were then able to obtain probable cause warrants.

Kristy M. LaCour, 33 of Alexandria, La., was transferred from the Rapides Parish Detention Center and booked into the Natchitoches Parish Detention Center charged with 66-counts of Unauthorized Use of an Access Card, and 1-count of Theft of Fuel.

Terrance J. Coutee Jr., aka/"TJ", 36 also of Alexandria, La., was transferred from the Rapides Parish Detention Center and booked into the Natchitoches Parish Detention Center charged with Principle to Unauthorized Use of an Access Card, and Theft of Fuel.

Both LaCour and Coutee Jr. remain in the Natchitoches Detention Center.

Additional charges are pending in Rapides Parish.

Deputies say they believe the credit card was stolen from the victim, while the victim, who was familiar with the suspects, allowed them to stay at her residence for a couple of days because they had no place to live.
