Beaumont Starbucks Sets Record 'Pay It Forward'…

Four Arrested for Purse Theft at Outlets

Four Orange County men are suspected of stealing more than $10,000 in purses from Dolce and Gabanna.

Four men were arrested after they stole approximately $10,000 worth of purses from Dolce and Gabanna at the Desert Hills Premium Outlets.

The suspects entered the store at 8 p.m., just as employees, were locking the front doors and removed numerous high end purses, said Sgt. Alan Meservey, of the Riverside County Sheriff's Department. They fled in a waiting car.

Dolce and Gabanna employees immediately reported the burglary and provided a description of the three suspects, while a mall patron described the getaway car as a white Mercedes Benz with dealer plates. Deputies then posted up on Interstate 10 at Highland Springs Avenue to wait for the suspects. Deputies spotted the car traveling west on I-10 and began pursuit, eventually conducting a high risk felony stop on Highway 60 just west of Jack Rabbit Trail.

The purses were recovered after a search of the Mercedes Benz.

Store employees and witnesses later positively identified the suspects as the men who stole the purses. 

Paul Hayes, 25, of Anaheim, Ackeem Ramsay, 22, of Anaheim, Nquenzeni Moyo, 22 of Garden Grove and Anthony Smith, 21 of Buena Park, were all booked into the Smith Correctional Facility in Banning on charges of commercial burglary and conspiracy. They are each being held on $25,000 bail.

WTG employees!! Hope the store treats these awesome employees to a raise. That is an awesome amount of money saved for the store!

Totally agree, Washy! That's a whole lot of money

It was probably only 3 or 4 purses

A raise? For what? The store was robbed by some lowlifes, the employees provided a description to the police, police apprehended the perps, the employees identified them. I would think that is exactly what ANY employee would be expected to do. What was their alternative action? Refuse to cooperate with the police? Refuse to give descriptions? And a mall patron, not an employee, gave a description of the vehicle, which is what allowed police to actually apprehend the thieves. A Raise? Kinda like all of the "participation" trophies given out in youth sports, right?

Dang Gary, I've never read anything you've written that wasn't meant to degrade or humiliate someone for having an opinion.. these ladies wrote something nice and positive and you couldn't wait to poopoo all over them.. Dolce and Gabanna should give the employees a bonus and the mall patron a free purse of their choice, JUST BECAUSE!!!!

Well said Steve!!!

Then you obviously haven't read everything that I've written. And you should talk about writing insulting comments here, eh? Glass houses ring a bell? Don't misunderstand, I'm not putting the employees down, I just don't see that they did anythiing spectactular, that's all. Explain to me how what I said here degraded or humiliated anyone, or "poopoo'd" on them. I just stated some facts. Were any of them wrong? No. What exactly did the employees do that was so special? That justifies a raise? Of course, that's the society we live in today, I guess. We all expect "high-fives", "Atta-boys", and "Kudos" just for doing what we should all be doing without question in the first place. Of course, we also "worship" sports stars and/or rappers as "heroes", rather than doctors, teachers, fire fighters, and police..but that's another blog altogether. I guarantee you won't hear "Washy" praising the officers that actually made the arrest in this case, when they are the ones who actually DID something.

Don't praise anyone for doing their job EXCEPT for police, because you arnt allowed to criticizes them because their jobs are "harder" and because they are public servants. Wait what?! Don't tip the lady at Starbucks for making your coffee either because it's her job. Funny how hypocritical some people are.
ATC August 29, 2012 at 06:35 PM
Wow, interesting how you can twist things to fit your perspective, and "read my mind" I guess? I didn't "praise" the police for doing their job, nor did I say it was ok because their jobs are "harder" or that they are public servants...that's all your statements. I was simply pointing out the fact, that while the OP (Washy) heaps praise on the employees (who didn't really do anything), he has never said anything other than insults about police. As for tipping at Starbucks, that's irrelevant to this article, unless I'm missing something. Do you tip the cashier at McDonalds? (again, irrelevant) You have yet to explain what the employees did that JUSTIFIES A RAISE. That's my question, and that's where your self-rightous responses continue to fall short. You'd rather attack me personally than actually make a legitimate argument for those raises.
Aaron Alexander August 29, 2012 at 06:36 PM
I don't think they deserve a raise, maybe a "good job", but that's more about keeping employee morale up. My point was police don't deserve praise every time they do their jobs either. And if you think they do then they should also expect to get criticized when they don't. Can't have it both ways.
ATC August 29, 2012 at 06:49 PM
Then why attack me for saying I don't think they deserve a raise? I've never said the police deserve praise here, nor have I ever said that they can't be criticized when they are in the wrong. Again, that's your claim. Debate me with facts, I welcome it, and you might change my mind. It's happened before, and it'll happen again (or maybe I'll even change your mind). But as soon as someone resorts to name calling, insults, exaggerations, lies...then their credibility is lost, as is their argument.
Aaron Alexander August 29, 2012 at 06:52 PM
I'm not attacking you. Just pointing out how similar these two examples are and that you have drastically different views, because one person hangs up purses while the other is a cop. You say the employer shouldn't praise them for doing what the employer hired them to do(their job, broad scope). I say I shouldn't have to praise cops for doing their jobs (taxpayer plays role of manager with expectations that they DO their job at all times).
ATC August 29, 2012 at 07:39 PM
Well, two posts up, you called me a hypocrite, so I take that as an attack. You also say that while the two examples are similar, I have drastically different views about them, but that's where you lost me. Am I blind, or are you? Where are you seeing that I have different views on those two? I have NEVER said that police deserve praise for doing their jobs. I have NEVER said that police cannot be criticized when they are wrong. I don't think anyone, in any profession, deserves "rewards" for doing what their job description calls for, retail clerk or police officer, because that is what they are supposed to do. When have I said differently?
