Sheriff's Deputies from the Lemon Grove Station were alerted by a private security team from a local shopping mall that potential stolen property was being sold from a booth at the Spring Valley Swap Meet. Deputies responded and discovered approximately $500,000.00 worth of suspected stolen property. Detectives from the Lemon Grove Station assisted in the investigation and identified the victims. The stolen merchandise was mostly high end clothing items from major department stores in Fashion Valley. Some of the recovered stolen items had tags from Macy's, Banana Republic, Victoria's Secret and Bath and Body Works. Det. Ting characterized the theft ring as "sophisticated." Representatives from several Fashion Valley stores did eventually identify their stolen property and one department store actually had one of the arrested suspects on video stealing the merchandise they discovered at the swap meet booth.
