On Monday, August 6 at 5:50 p.m., Burbank Police responded to an incident of grand theft at Target in Empire Center, located at 1800 Empire Ave.
After the three adult suspects, two men and one woman, stole more than $900 in electronics, they were confronted by loss prevention officers. One of the suspects then punched the officer in the face and proceeded to flee the scene.
The suspects, reported as two men and a woman, left the stolen items behind and reportedly fled in a white sedan.
A man and a woman were arrested for grand theft by Burbank Police for taking 11 Michael Kors purses and two pieces of luggage from the Marshalls store at 1701 N. Victory Place on Monday, January 27, at 5:30 p.m. Marshalls security called BPD when the pair, Rosemary Alcantar of Oxnard and Ruben Flores of Santa Paula, were seen placing the purses inside the two pieces of luggage in the store.
