LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) -

Two people have been arrested after an investigation into a stolen purse revealed a stolen credit card was being used at a nearby auto parts store, police said.  The arrests happened after a brief chase into a neighborhood where an armed robbery was reported last week.

Lake Charles Police Deputy Chief Mark Kraus said Tuesday that officers were called to investigate a report of a stolen purse at Wal-Mart on Hwy 14 after 3 p.m.  During the investigation, police found the credit card had recently been used at O'Reilly Auto Parts in the 1400 block of East Prien Lake Road. 

"The bank showed us there was activity actually happening on the card while we were investigating. So we sent officers to the store," explained Kraus.

When police arrived, they found four people at the store believed to be involved in the incident at Wal-Mart.  Kraus said one person ran from the store.  They were later found hiding in a trash can in the 3200 block of Aster Street.  Only one of the three remaining at the auto parts store was arrested.  Police later released the other two after determining they were not involved in the alleged crime.

Police arrested Daisha Calhoun, 18, at the auto parts store, and Terrance Davis, 20, in the 3200 block of Aster Street.

Calhoun and Davis both face charges of unauthorized use of an access card and theft. Davis faces additional charges of criminal trespassing and resisting an officer.

Even though the armed robbery report was made last week, investigators said Tuesday they're not ruling out if these two incidents are related.

Lake Charles Police are still investigating the incidents.
