The employee said a woman fitting one of the two descriptions was trying to return items in Danville. Police detained the woman, identified as Rickieda Wright, 26, of Oakland. During the interview with Wright, the woman claimed she had done nothing wrong. Officers noted that her cell phone kept ringing but that she did not answer. On examination of the cell, they saw that it had received several calls from the same number.
Calling back the number, officers talked to an unidentified male who refused to speak to officers and refused to come to the store. With a description of the suspect auto, police quickly canvassed the area and discovered Tariq Shabazz, 24, parked in the Costco parking lot nearby.
Wright and Shabazz were taken into custody on charges of commercial burglary and conspiracy. Both are currently free on bond.
