39 year old Melissa Kathryn Jones was arrested by Scott Police Monday after a lengthy investigation. Surveillance video from the Acadian Food Mart where Jones was employed showed a pattern of criminal behavior.

The video included several incidents of Jones stealing food and drinks from shelves as well as taking money from the register and cash deposits. Video also provided evidence that Jones would provide cigarettes and sell alcohol to underage persons.

Jones is currently in the Lafayette Parish Correctional Center charged with felony theft, contributing to the delinquency of a juvenile, unlawful sales to person under 21 and an unrelated traffic warrant.
