Four people arrested, security agent injured www.privateofficer.com
Thomecia Thompson and Cortni Keyes, both of Oakland, filled a basket with prepaid credit cards inside a store in the 11400 block of San Pablo Avenue about 6:30 p.m., then tried to leave without paying, police said.
Store security officers followed the pair into the parking lot and tried to detain them, but the two suspects jumped into a vehicle where two other people were waiting. When the security officers tried to stop the car, all four suspects began to resist, police said.
A police officer on patrol nearby was flagged down and arrested the four suspects. Thompson and Keyes were arrested and booked on charges of robbery, burglary, battery and conspiracy. They were taken to the County Jail in Martinez. The other two suspects were cited and released.
One security officer received a minor injury on the arm, which did not require medical treatment.
