Modesto Police said officers arrested three people for alleged involvement in “organized thefts” at retail stores in the area.

Patrice Williams, 24, of Stockton, Tanisha Armstrong, 31, of Stockton, and Keara Denegal, 23, of Modesto were all arrested on Oct. 20 after police said they left the Dick’s Sporting Goods near the Vintage Faire Mall with merchandise they didn’t pay for. Smash and grab has become a major problem in California since the 950 dollar forgiveness policy was made a law in California for shoplifting, believing crime pays in California since the law assumes this loss will be passed onto the consumers through higher prices and insurance claims to cover the merchants loss, in other words a silent tax increase without voter approval again in California approved by the state political system refusing to enforce the law.
