On Thursday, a gang of shoplifters made off with thousands of dollars worth of products from a Nike store in Irvine, California. One of the suspects was only 14 years old.
While the juvenile’s name has not been released, the identities of the other three suspects were made public. Kristen Jamie Himbarger, 19, China Celeste Morris, 24, and Anaiya Syrai Cole, 19, were caught on camera grabbing armfuls of clothing and accessories from the racks before bolting out the front door with their young accomplice and a man, who has not been identified.
According to KTLA5 , all four suspects were apprehended by police shortly after carrying out the theft and taken into custody. The value of their loot was estimated to be around $3,000.
The quartet is believed to belong to an organized retail crime group that has previously targeted Nike stores in cities southeast of Los Angeles. Over the course of those attacks, nearly $11,000 worth of merchandise was stolen.
