Napa Police reported the arrests of two women in connection with two thefts from a Levi's outlet store in five days.
The suspects first went to Napa Premium Outlets on Freeway Drive on Nov. 17, when they selected various pieces of clothing and left without paying, according to Cpl. Alfonso Ortiz. At about 4:30 p.m. Wednesday, the women returned, took more clothes from the store and drove away, but employees recognized them from the previous incident and called police, Ortiz said.
Officers stopped a vehicle at the intersection of Highways 12/121 and 29 and arrested the occupants, 34-year-old Crystal Monique Sandling of Antioch and 37-year-old Khadijah Thompson of Oakland.
Inside the vehicle were clothing items from several stores, with the security tags still attached, according to Ortiz, who said the total value was still being calculated because some of the victimized stores had not yet been contacted.
Both women were booked into the Napa County jail for investigation of theft, criminal conspiracy and possessing stolen property. Thompson also faces felony warrants in Los Angeles County and Albuquerque, New Mexico, Ortiz said.
