Authorities in San Bernardino County arrested two suspects in connection with stealing property from a smoke shop.
According to a San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department release, Cigmart, a smoke shop located at 21620 Bear Valley Road in Apple Valley, was the victim of a commercial theft last Sunday when two women walked into the store and took jewelry boxes without paying for them.
Responding deputies began an investigation and learned the identities of the two women, 27-year-old Rocksan Nunez and 30-year-old Alexis Renita Allen, both of Victorville.
Deputies were able to locate Nunez at a residence in the 17400 block of Sequoia Street in Hesperia on Wednesday morning just after 8 a.m., where she was found to be in possession of some of the stolen property, authorities said.
She was arrested for the theft and an outstanding warrant and then transported to the High Desert Detention Center where she is being held in lieu of $30,000 bail.
Allen was apprehended just hours later in the 11700 block of Alana Way in Victorville. She was also found to be in possession of property stolen in the theft, SBSD said.
She was transported to the High Desert Detention Center where she later posted bail.
Both suspects were charged with commercial burglary and grand theft.
