$8,000 Worth of Medications Once Were Lost, Then Were Found

When April showers bring May flowers, May flowers bring allergies—and afflicted customers flocking to Walgreens in search of medicinal relief.

But that’s probably not why two women were found in possession of over $8,000 worth of medications, stolen from Walgreens and other locations between the cities of Compton and Rancho Cucamonga.

On April 25, 2019, officers were parked in the lot of Walgreens Pharmacy at 6753 Carnelian Street on an “unrelated matter,” according to a news release by the Rancho Cucamonga Police Department.

They noticed a “suspicious vehicle,” with a passenger who “reached out of the door and removed the license plate off of a car parked next to the deputies.”

The two women in the vehicle then parked the car, entered Walgreens, and were intercepted by officers upon their exit. An investigation of the suspects, identified as Breshanay Coleman of Compton (25) and Euzhane Lee of Long Beach (23), revealed that the women had shoplifted “numerous over the counter medications.”

Several trash bags containing more medications stolen throughout the day were found in the suspects’ vehicle. Other stolen license plates—including the one on their vehicle—were also recovered.

Coleman and Lee were arrested and are being held at the West Valley Detention Center. “Additionally, Lee was booked on eight outstanding warrants from Riverside, Orange, Los Angeles, El Segundo and Burbank.”
