Couple seen in strip club surveillance video arrested in Tangipahoa Parish
June 13, 2012 11:30 AM UPDATE: The two people in the surveillance video are in custody in Tangiphoa Parish, according to Hancock County officials.
The woman is identified as Margaret Sanchez and they are working to identify the male because he has many aliases.
They were arrested in Louisiana on charges unrelated to the disappearance of Jaren Lockhart: the man is wanted in North Carolina and Sanchez was arrested for harboring a fugitive, according to Danielle Thomas from WLOX-TV.
The Hancock County, Mississippi Sheriff’s Office released surveillance pictures of two persons of interest in the killing and dismemberment of a Bourbon Street dancer.
Deputies say a man and a woman are seen in surveillance pictures leaving Temptations with 23-year-old Jaren Lockhart, a beloved mother, sister and daughter to family members in Hammond and elsewhere.
The security footage shows a blond woman and a tank-top, tattooed, checkered hat wearing man enter the strip club last Wednesday morning just before 2AM, according to the Sheriff’s Office. Investigators also said they have video of the pair leaving the club 20 minutes later with Lockhart, but that portion of the video has not been released.
Neither of the two were labeled suspects, but are wanted for questioning.
Lockhart’s torso was found on a Bay St. Louis Mississippi beach last Thursday night before her limbs and decapitated head surfaced several miles away in Harrison County over the weekend.
Deputies say they don’t know the nature of the relationship the wanted man and the woman had with Lockhart.
Anyone with information on the identities of the two or other details on the case is urged to call the Hancock County Sheriff’s Office at (228)466-6910.
