A shoplifting at a Bossier City store led to the arrest of two Arkansas women Tuesday and the recovery of thousands of dollars in stolen merchandise taken from retail stores in two states.

Bossier City police arrested Emerald Lasheryl Cheatham, 19, and Nefretiri Akosua Carter, 22, both of El Dorado, Arkansas on charges of the theft of goods and illegal possession of stolen things after officers responded to a shoplifting call at the Dillard's store in Pierre Bossier Mall late Tuesday afternoon.

Police received a report of two women, later identified as Cheatham and Carter, taking a purse and wallet from a display rack before they exited the store and drove off in a car. Officers found the vehicle on I-20 near Hamilton Road a short time later and conducted a traffic stop.

Police recovered the stolen purse and wallet from inside the vehicle along with a bounty of what was later determined to be stolen merchandise that the two had also shoplifted earlier in the day from the Walmart and Stage stores in Bossier City and from a Walmart store in Camden, Arkansas. The merchandise included numerous articles of clothing and accessories as well as four computers and a DVD player. The stolen merchandise was valued at more than $4800.

Cheatham and Carter were both booked into the Bossier City Jail and the stolen merchandise was returned.
