4 Arrested in Southern California Theft Operation of 43 Retail Stores

Four people were arrested by California Highway Patrol officers on suspicion of stealing nearly $2 million worth of retail products from 43 different stores and storing them inside a Midway City mobile home and multiple storage units, the Mercury News reported.

A search warrant served by California Highway Patrol investigators led to the discovery of the stolen goods, requiring multiple trucks to recover and transport the vast amount of merchandise found during the operation. All items had store tags, sensors, and were in brand-new condition. $65,000 in cash was also recovered, officials say, according to the Mercury News.

Jaime Mendoza, 36, and Maritza Guerrero, 31, both of Anaheim, were brought into custody on Aug. 31 after CHP investigators saw them commit at least one theft and take the stolen merchandise to the mobile home, CHP officials said.
