Retail Theft Items Worth $1 Million Were Found in a La Warehouse and 1 Woman Arrested 


During a major retail theft investigation, the California Highway Patrol discovered cosmetics worth over $1 million that had been stolen from CVS, Sephora, and Ulta Beauty. A woman in Los Angeles was arrested as a result of the discovery.

Brenda Yanez, 48, is accused of grand theft, organized retail theft, and having stolen items, according to the CHP.

Investigators claim she is part of a well-run retail theft ring that targeted many Southern California businesses, such as Ulta Beauty, Nordstrom, Rite Aid, CVS, Sephora, and the 99 Cents Only Store.

On Tuesday, CHP officers carried out search warrants at both the Makeup Store on Whittier Boulevard in Los Angeles and a building in Paramount.

Police found a lot of stolen goods along with “tools used to remove anti-theft devices,” according to CHP.

“CHP investigators will continue to work proactively with our loss prevention partners, allied agencies, and prosecutors through the holidays to combat organized retail crime throughout California,” the CHP said in a news release.

The police are looking into the situation further. A picture of the woman who was taken has not been made public by the cops.
