3 Arrested in Baby Formula Heist
Auburn, CA-- Placer County sheriff's deputies arrested three Bay Area burglary suspects and are seeking a fourth after the group stole a large amount of baby formula from the north Auburn Bel Air store Wednesday evening.
It appears the suspects were stealing formula and other expensive items, totaling $6,000, from Reno to the Bay Area.
At 6:50 pm, two women and two men entered the store, located on Highway 49, and were observed filling duffel bags with baby formula. As a store employee attempted to intercept them, one male suspect fled out the front doors with a bag of stolen merchandise.
The other suspects dumped merchandise in various aisles before they fled outside to a blue sedan. Two employees chased the first male suspect, but stopped when he crossed Highway 49. The duffel bag full of formula was recovered when the man dropped it.
Deputies swarmed the area and citizens pointed them to the blue sedan, a rental car, which was parked behind a building on Kemper Road, directly across the highway from the store.
A deputy saw the two female suspects run from the car and quickly detained them. The male suspect ran in a different direction. Despite setting a perimeter and assistance from CHP air support and a K-9 search, neither male was found at that point.
About two hours later, suspect Damon Yon Marcus Nash, 24, of Hayward, was located walking along Highway 49, near Live Oak Lane. He was taken into custody without incident.
The suspects' vehicle held 160 stolen items, the majority of which were large containers of baby formula, but detectives also found quantities of Prilosec medication, Sensodyne toothpaste and large bottles of tequila.
Detectives have determined that the stolen items were taken from several grocery stores from the Bay Area to Reno.
Charday Mariah Monique Brown, 18, of Hayward, Torryiel Gayla Griggs, 20, of Oakland, and Nash were booked at the Placer County Jail on charges of commercial burglary and conspiracy. Griggs also had a burglary warrant from Alameda County. Detectives are looking for the fourth suspect.
