Police Wednesday arrested one of three women suspected in more than two dozen thefts of high-end fragrances at stores in the Northridge and Westfield Topanga shopping malls.
The crimes occurred between March 30 and June 14.
“The suspects would enter the businesses with empty tote or shopping bags, conceal high-dollar men’s or women’s fragrances in their empty shopping bags and leave the store(s) without paying for the merchandise,” according to a Los Angeles Police Department statement. “In some incidents, the suspects threatened or aggressively took items when store personnel confronted them. The suspects were responsible for thousands of dollars in property loss.”
Detectives took Shamoria Jackson into custody on a felony arrest warrant and continued their efforts to find Trinity Venable and Glennesha Denham, also known as Glennesha Okonkwo.
Anyone knowing their whereabouts, or having any information on the case, was urged to call (213) 486-6940, or (877) LAPD-247.
