Police say a man and woman broke in at Love My Pets but apparently didn’t take supplies the shop uses to groom small dogs. They left with cash, police Capt. William Jackson said.

Surveillance video helped police identify the couple shown during the July 23 break-in, Jackson said.

Ocean Springs resident Nichole Ann Anderson 28, of Point Aux Chenes Drive, was arrested on a commercial burglary charge and taken to the Ocean Springs jail, Jackson said Friday. Her bond has been set at $25,000.

Police issued an arrest warrant for Biloxi resident Charles Elton Fayard, 27, of Rustwood Drive. His name has been entered in the National Crime Information Center database.

Anderson and Fayard took an unspecified amount of money from a cash register, police said.

Responding officers found someone had forced open a back door in the early morning of July 23.

“We don’t know how they got there or how they left,” Jackson said.

A detective who viewed surveillance footage identified them, he said.

Anyone who knows of Fayard’s whereabouts or with any information is asked to call the Ocean Springs Police Department at 228-875-2211 or Mississippi Coast Crime Stoppers at 877-787-5898.
