Three out-of-towners, including a 16-year-old boy, were arrested in Turlock on allegations they stole several thousands of dollars in electronics from Target.
Around 9 p.m. Monday an officer driving through the parking lot at the Monte Vista Crossings shopping center was flagged down by store security.
The security guard reported three individuals had just stolen from the store and were trying to make their escape.
The officer was able to detain one suspect at the scene and other officers apprehended the two other suspects across the street, near the Old Navy store, according to the Turlock Police Department.
The store’s security told the officers the three had been in the electronics department. When the clerk wasn’t looking they allegedly smashed a glass case and stole $2,500 worth of Apple products.
Arrested on suspicion of commercial burglary were Rick Pinnace, 21, Chanelle Halcrombe, 20, and a 16-year-old boy. All three were from Antioch.
