Incident of the day

On March 6 at approximately 10 a.m., loss prevention agents at Bloomingdale’s department store saw a suspect take a box set of cologne from the fragrance counter and place it inside a bag he was carrying.

A short time later, the suspect grabbed a pair of sunglasses off a sales counter and also placed them inside his bag.

The suspect then walked out of the store without paying for the items, but was stopped and detained by the loss prevention agents.

While the agents were waiting for police to arrive, the suspect appeared to have a seizure. Paramedics responded and assessed the suspect, but he later admitted he faked the seizure. The suspect was then booked at Santa Monica Jail.

The suspect was identified as Travis Nelson, 34, of Los Angeles. He was denied bail.
