A 24-year-old man has been arrested on theft charges, authorities said.

"The investigation revealed the victim was moving and was being assisted by her father and Manuel, an acquaintance," Myers said Wednesday in a news conference. "Later in the day, the father noticed some of his daughter's furniture and other items were missing."

Myers said the missing property, valued at over $3,950, was found in the Sulphur home where Manuel was staying.

Bond was set at $3,500.
