At the Raley’s, three “suspicious young men” were pushing cars full of beer and laundry detergent then exited the back door of the store. Police said they loaded those items in the back of a black Ford F150, but store staff was able to provide police with the truck’s license plate number.

The Contra Costa Sheriff’s helicopter then located the suspect vehicle near Vintage Parkway and Big Break Road where Oakley police conducted a traffic stop. According to police, the four men inside the truck were detained, and police identified three of them to be the ones who stole the merchandise.

  • Renaldy Mendieta, 44, of Antioch was arrested for organized retail theft, conspiracy and possession of illegal drugs. Police say he was also the getaway driver.
  • Justin Snyder, 18, of Discovery Bay was arrested for organized retail theft and conspiracy.
  • Lawrence Domina, 22, of Clayton was arrested for organized retail theft and conspiracy.
  • Justin Dornenburg, 20, of Concord was arrested for organized retail theft and conspiracy.

As of 6:50 p.m., all four suspects’ bail is $40,000, according to Contra Costa County Sheriff records. They were all booked into the Martinez Detention Facility.

Domina was listed as 22 years old in Oakley police’s Facebook post, but Contra Costa County Sheriff records say Domina was born in 1994.
