BRENTWOOD — One of two suspects arrested for theft of children’s clothing was linked to another reported theft at the same shopping center. Both incidents happened at Streets of Brentwood on Sand Creek Road.

Officers responded on the afternoon of July 26 to a reported theft at The Children’s Place store. An employee provided a description and license plate number of the vehicle used by the suspects.

Officers spotted it attempting to flee from the area and pulled over the vehicle. Two women inside the vehicle were detained and subsequently arrested. The suspects are 30-year-old Paulosha Glasper and 25-year-old Amoni Ponnell-Fontain, both residents of Antioch.

In a prepared statement Brentwood police said. “The officer who pulled them over recognized one of them from a previous theft report he took.”

Approximately $2,200 worth of stolen merchandise was recovered and returned to the stores at the shopping center. Both women were transported and booked at the Martinez Detention Facility.

Glasper was on supervised probation for a prior theft conviction when she was arrested. She also had an outstanding warrant for burglary. Glasper was later transferred to the West County Detention Facility in Richmond.

No stranger to law enforcement, Glasper has prior arrests for shoplifting, petty theft, grand theft, and receiving stolen property. Also, she was previously arrested for DUI alcohol/drugs and public intoxication.

Meanwhile, her shopping companion, Ponnell-Fontain is no longer in custody. Incidentally, she was also arrested in June for assault with a deadly weapon/assault likely to produce great bodily injury.
