CAMPTI, La. (KALB News Channel 5) –It isn't every day that deputies arrest two men for allegedly stealing beer.

According to Natchitoches Parish Sheriff's Office, they have arrested Marvin Deandre Kirts, 26, of Campti, and Carlos Donaway, 40, of Natchitoches, for falsifying invoices and stealing beer from a north Natchitoches Parish convenience store.

Detectives said they were dispatched to a Campti business in reference to theft on August 13th. While talking to the business owner, they learned that the business had been charged for beer, by a local beer distributor, but the beer was never delivered.

Detectives said the business owner estimated the beer to be in the amount of 350 cases valued at approximately $6000.

During the investigation, NPSO detectives determined that a beer salesman had altered several sales invoices that indicated that the business was receiving more merchandise than they were actually delivering.

Detectives then learned that the cases of beer were being sold at another convenience store in the Campti area. 

On August 15th, detectives arrested Kirts and charged him with theft over $1,500.  He was taken to the Natchitoches Parish Detention Center.

Shortly afterwards, Donaway was arrested and charged with illegal possession of stolen things valued at $1,500 or more. He was taken to the Natchitoches Detention Center on August 21st.

NPSO, does not believe the local beer distributor had any knowledge of the criminal activity and at this time, Kirts and Donaway are the only ones believed to be responsible.

However, if anyone has had any similar incidents with their businesses or distributions, they are asked to contact Detective Darrel Winder of NPSO at 318-357-7834.

The investigation is ongoing.
