Death – Obituary – Accident and Crime News : Santa Rosa Store Robbed of $10,000 Worth of Designer Jackets, Four Arrested

Santa Rosa, CA – In a brazen act of theft, approximately $10,000 worth of high-end designer jackets were stolen from a clothing store in Santa Rosa on Monday. The Santa Rosa Police Department swiftly responded to the incident and managed to apprehend four individuals in connection with the crime.

The incident occurred at around 11:50 a.m. on Monday in the 2400 block of Magowan Drive. Witnesses at the scene reported that two men entered the store and made off with a large number of designer jackets. The stolen merchandise, valued at about $10,000, was a significant blow to the business.

According to eyewitness accounts, the thieves quickly fled the store and hopped into a waiting car, which was driven by a female accomplice. Determined to bring the culprits to justice, the police obtained the license plate of the suspect vehicle and were able to intercept it later that evening near Cleveland Avenue and College Avenue. The driver, identified as Stephanie de Soto, a 38-year-old resident of Santa Rosa, was immediately detained.

A thorough search of the vehicle conducted by the police yielded not only one of the stolen jackets but also methamphetamine, as well as evidence of identity theft and check fraud. Two passengers in the car were arrested on unrelated charges, while de Soto was taken into custody for her involvement in the theft.

Further investigation by the Santa Rosa Police Department led them to identify the two male suspects responsible for the burglary. It was discovered that they had been staying in separate rooms at a motel on the 3100 block of Santa Rosa Avenue. Armed with search warrants, detectives raided the motel rooms and successfully arrested Kenneth Torres, 47, and Randall Hendry, 40, both residents of Santa Rosa. Another woman present at the time was also taken into custody in connection with the theft.

Hendry, Torres, and de Soto now face charges of organized retail theft with intent to sell. Additionally, Hendry and Torres are also being charged with burglary, grand theft, and conspiracy. The police have stated that approximately 75% of the stolen jackets remain unaccounted for and are believed to have been sold. However, the diligent efforts of the Santa Rosa Police Department have resulted in the recovery of the remaining stolen merchandise.

This incident serves as a reminder to businesses to remain vigilant and take necessary precautions to protect their valuable inventory. The Santa Rosa Police Department continues to investigate the case and is urging anyone with information to come forward.
