MENIFEE (CNS) – A 20-year-old Perris woman accused of stealing almost $34,000 worth of beauty supplies from several Inland stores is scheduled to be arraigned on burglary and grand theft charges Monday.
Jatae Armster was arrested along with Devion Stanch and Anton Mitchell, both 19 of Moreno Valley, on Thursday accused in burglarizing several ULTA Beauty locations in Menifee, Temecula, Rialto and Fontana, the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department reported.
The investigation began when deputes arrived at 10:53 a.m. Thursday at the ULTA
Beauty store at 30050 Haun Road in Menifee to a report of three people entering the store and stealing a large amount of perfume and cologne, sheriff’s officials said.
Investigators later linked the trio to a string of burglaries at ULTA Beauty locations in other Inland Empire cities.
The total loss from the burglaries was $33,900, according to sheriff’s officials.
On Thursday, deputies served search warrants at locations in Perris and Moreno Valley, and arrested the three suspects.
Armster is the only of the three to not make bail. She remains jailed at the Robert Presley Detention Center in Riverside on $10,000 bail and was scheduled to be arraigned Monday on one count each of burglary and grand theft.
