Police arrested LaTonya Gorden and Yasheeka Grant Tuesday afternoon, accusing them of stuffing jackets in their shopping bags at Macy’s, with the jacket security tags wrapped in tin foil. Grant also has outstanding warrants in Holyoke.
At around that same time, police went to Victoria’s Secret, where Cory Adbiaziz (also known as Hector Green) was arrested for stealing bras.
Prosecutor Carrie Spiros told the judge that the three may be part of a larger, out-of-state shoplifting ring.
“The investigators have indicated to our office that they may rise to the level of organized retail crime. We do believe that the three have been working together as part of a shoplifting ring,” said Spiros.
Spiros added they could face more enhanced charges at a later date.
All three posted bail and are due back in court on Jan. 30.
