LOS GATOS, Calif. (KRON) — Five individuals were arrested without incident Saturday in connection to an organized retail theft in Walnut Creek, the Los Gatos Police Department announced in a press release. The theft happened that morning at the Apple Store in Walnut Creek located at 1200 S Main St.
After the suspects left the store with the stolen merchandise, officers were provided a car description and license plate for a red 2014 KIA sedan. Then, Los Gatos police found the suspect car, which had two suspects inside, on the 15000 block of Los Gatos Boulevard during an enforcement stop.
Officers searched the vehicle and found two loaded firearms — one in which was illegally manufactured also known as a “ghost gun.” The two occupants of the car were arrested for their involvement in the theft and illegal possession of firearms, the release said.
As the investigation continued, officers determined another three suspects were in connection to the Apple Store theft: two juveniles and one adult male. They were associated with a gold Chevrolet sedan and in possession of stolen Apple products from the Walnut Creek store.
In total, five suspects were arrested, and Los Gatos police are working with the Walnut Creek Police Department in the recovery of the stolen merchandise, according to the release. Two suspects were not identified due to their juvenile status.
