Brentwood Police Make Retail Theft Arrest With Assist from Richmond Police

by CC News

The Brentwood Police Department announced the arrest of an Antioch woman in connection with organized retail theft.

On Tuesday, Brentwood officers were dispatched to a report of a theft at Kohl’s. When the first officer arrived, he saw two of the suspects get into a car, which was parked in front of the store. The officer recognized it as being a suspect car involved in multiple prior thefts from Kohl’s.

The suspect car, which was driving recklessly and at a high rate of speed, fled from officers on scene. Because the suspects were believed to be involved in multiple thefts, with a most recent theft of $20,000, Dispatch notified other agencies of the information regarding the suspects and the involved car.

About an hour after this incident, Richmond Police notified Brentwood Dispatch that they had located the car and had one of the occupants, identified as 25 year-old Maya Usher of Antioch, in custody.

Usher was positively identified as one of the suspects responsible for the thefts. The investigation also determined Usher is responsible for being involved in thousands of dollars worth of thefts from Kohl’s Department stores in and outside Contra Costa County.

Usher was placed under arrest for organized retail theft, evading police, and other related charges.

This investigation is ongoing, and we will continue to work diligently in holding the other involved suspects accountable for their involvement. Brentwood Police also thanked the Richmond PD for their assistance in this investigation.
