BRENTWOOD — Two women were jailed for organized retail theft at the Streets of Brentwood shopping mall. Officers responding to theft at T.J. Maxx reportedly saw the suspects attempting to steal from another store.

The pair allegedly purloined a large bag of merchandise at T.J. Maxx. Next, they drove to the nearby Victoria’s Secret store. Responding officers located the vehicle used by the suspects and saw them attempting to steal items from Victoria’s Secret.

The incident happened last week. Shacorey A. Wyatt, 22, of San Francisco, and Mariah Vasquez, 23, of Concord, were booked at the Martinez Detention Facility. Merchandise with retail value exceeding $1,200 was recovered from the vehicle used by the suspects.

When she was detained, Wyatt attempted to falsely identify herself to the police. It turns out she was on probation for convictions in Alameda County, and she had four outstanding arrest warrants. She faces additional charges for probation violation, providing false identification to an officer, and outstanding warrants.

Wyatt has a prior conviction for grand theft in 2020. For this, she was incarcerated at Alameda County Santa Rita Jail, and sentenced to five years of supervised probation. In January this year, she was granted probation stemming from a conviction for assault with a deadly weapon.

This is the fifth time that Wyatt was arrested for organized retail theft. Including her most recent arrest, Wyatt has been arrested 11 times since 2021. She also has prior arrests for burglary, kidnapping, robbery, and possession of controlled substances.

Vasquez was arrested previously for offenses including grand theft, petty theft, and robbery. This lady also has a prior conviction.
