Suspects Caught with $6000 of Stolen Baby Goods and Liquor

Three theft suspects arrested and one on the run in Auburn. Placer County Public Information Officer Dena Erwin tells KNCO the four individuals are involved with stealing 6000 dollars in baby formula and other high end items from a number of stores from the Bay Area to Reno. The suspects were caught in the North Auburn Bel Air Store Wednesday just before 7:00 PM.

The suspects fled outside to a blue sedan. Two employees chased the first male suspect, but stopped when he crossed Highway 49. The duffel bag full of formula was recovered when the man dropped it.

Deputies swarmed the area and citizens pointed them to the blue sedan, a rental car, parked behind a building on Kemper Road, directly across the highway from the store.*

The suspects’ vehicle held 160 stolen items, the majority of which were large containers of baby formula, but detectives also found quantities of Prilosec medication, Sensodyne toothpaste and large bottles of tequila.

Charday Brown, 18, of Hayward, Torryiel Griggs, 20, of Oakland, and Damon Nash were booked at the Placer County Jail on charges of commercial burglary and conspiracy. Griggs also had a burglary warrant from Alameda County. Detectives are looking for the fourth suspect.
