By From page A3 | January 27, 2014

VACAVILLE — Police arrested two women Friday after they allegedly stole merchandise worth more than $3,000 from retailers at the Vacaville Premium Outlets and Solano Town Center mall.

An employee at Hartstrings Outlet Store called police dispatch to report two people taking property without paying, according to a press release from the Vacaville Police Department. Officers responded to the Outlets on Nut Tree Road and confronted Monnisha Lanay Johnson, 26, and Tyneisha Andrea Taylor, 28, about the stolen items as they were leaving Charlotte Russe.

Police took the Oakland residents into custody.

Officers found a vehicle that was driven by one of the suspects. Police said a search of the vehicle yielded stolen merchandise from Hartstrings, Charlotte Russe, San Rio, Bath & Body Works, Timberland and Crazy 8 in the Outlets. Police said officers also found stolen merchandise from the Disney Store, Gymboree, Child’s Place and New York & Company in the Fairfield mall. Police said the stolen merchandise was valued in excess of $3,583.

Johnson and Taylor were booked into Solano County jail on suspicion of burglary, conspiracy and possession of stolen property. Johnson’s combined bail, which included additional allegations of possession of 10 or more fraudulent ID cards and acquiring 17 access cards without owner consent, totaled $160,000. Taylor’s combined bail, which included the additional allegations of possession of 10 or more fraudulent ID cards and acquiring five access cards without owner consent, totaled $95,000.

    How stoopid can they be? Most of the professional crooks know not to go to Vacaville to do their crimes. Obviously these guys were rookies. Now they know.
