3 Suspects Tied To Retail Theft Ring Arrested For Stealing Goods At Tanforan Mall

SAN BRUNO (CBS SF) – San Bruno police arrested three people for stealing merchandise at The Shops at Tanforan mall last week and say they are involved in a statewide retail theft ring.

Officers had responded at 8:10 p.m. Thursday to the mall at 1150 El Camino Real after multiple suspects fled a business there with stolen merchandise worth more than $4,000, according to police.

The officers arrived and found the trio -- 19-year-old Richmond resident Inaya Chatman, 27-year-old Richmond resident Mikela Sims and 30-year-old Antioch resident Kiaira Fluker—and arrested them on suspicion of grand theft, conspiracy and several outstanding warrants.

Fluker was also arrested last month after a robbery at Big 5 Sporting Goods in Milpitas and is also a suspect in other sporting goods store thefts in Daly City, Napa, Redwood City, Sacramento, Sunnyvale, and Walnut Creek. At the time, she had an arrest warrant from the Sacramento Police Department for grand theft.

Anyone with information about the case is asked to call San Bruno police at (650) 616-7100 or email
