Tips led to the arrests of a Pascagoula husband and wife accused of shoplifting dozens of hats, T-shirts, toys and religious books from a Saucier convenience store.

Items stolen from Keith’s Superstore on U.S. 49 include 21 T-shirts and 43 hats, 16 of them Alabama or LSU caps, Sheriff’s Lt. Coley Judy said.

Investigators identified Landon Christopher Demouey, 33, and his wife, Cheryl Marie Demouey, through tips shared on social media, Judy said.

The store reported the shoplifting June 20, he said.

The husband and wife were each arrested Thursday on a felony shoplifting charge.

Justice Court Judge Melvin Ray set bond for each at $20,000. The husband was freed on bond later Thursday.

The wife was being held at the county jail on court orders involving five misdemeanor convictions from 2011 and 2014. They include drug possession and traffic violations, such as failing to yield to blue lights and sirens, the jail docket shows.
