FOLSOM — Four women and a minor were arrested on Thursday, March 2, 2017, and are suspects in a heist in which nearly $80,000 in jewelry was stolen from a local store.

The unidentified jewelry merchant, who has a store on the 700 block of Sutter Street in Old Town Folsom, called police shortly before noon on March 2 after she realized a number of  items were missing. She told police she had been distracted by a group of customers prior to noticing her merchandise had been stolen.  After describing the suspects to police, one officer found the women just as they were leaving the area. Two of them tried to flee, but were caught by other officers, who happened to be nearby.

The suspects arrested are Stan Loghina, 45, of Anaheim; Stocian Zelanda, 41, of Anaheim; Mariana Slatineanu, 29, of San Leandro; Stefan Poiana, 18, of Westminster; and an unidentified juvenile.

The minor was booked into juvenile hall.

It has been estimated that they stole $77,038 worth of jewelry, which included rings and bracelets.
