According to Manhattan Beach Police Department reports, at 1 p.m. on September 6 a suspect stole a shopping cart full of products from a local retail store and fled in a vehicle. After pursuit, the suspect crashed her vehicle on the 405 freeway on-ramp and was taken into custody. Over $1,000 in stolen property was recovered, enough to potentially qualify as felony grand theft. 

“Another day, another thief who doesn’t follow us on social media!” MBPD reported on its social media. “She maybe would have known she wouldn’t get away with it here.” 

After the arrest, officers discovered the suspect was on probation for burglary and assault with a deadly weapon, and had multiple warrants in LA, and OC for other thefts.

It was the second arrest after a pursuit in as many days for MBPD. On September 5, officers arrested a suspect for an attempted vehicular burglary. After a short pursuit, the suspect was taken into custody without further incident.

Also, on September 4, officers conducted a traffic stop which resulted in the arrest of a convicted felon who was in possession of a firearm. According to MBPD crime statistics, of the 21 arrests made by officers last week, five included firearms-related charges. ER
